My "&" is broke.


When opening a program in a terminal putting " &" after it has used a seperate PID and allowed me to close the terminal and use the program. Now,even though it shows a seperate PID it closes the program when I close the term. The only place it works is in my .xinitrc for gkrellm.

"Blind hog finds acorn" This is a problem specific to "rxvt". Xterm works just fine.

Aren't you supposed to run programs like:
nohup gkrellm &
the nohup should keep the program open even if the term is closed/killed.
