Bug#1297: nohup doesn't seem to work

Package: shellutils
Version: 1.12
Revision: 3

I can reliably generate a HUP signal in a program run by nohup.  The
general approach is:

rxvt -e sh -c 'nohup testprog & sleep 5'

[The sleep is an arbitrary mechanism to allow the testprog to register
its signal handlers before the HUP is delivered.]
