Depends on how you close the Eterm - if you close it by clicking on the
close button of the window it's in, yes you're right. But if you exit
from the shell with a <Ctrl-D> or 'exit' the Eterm closes and leaves
backgrounded processes running. And I don't like messages vanishing
into nohup.out instead of being displayed... :-)
