Just checking: you did understand what dman meant, right?

Backgrounding the ssh session means using a flag like -f, -n or
otherwise using the background escape (~^Z or ~&). It absolutely
should not kill the process, otherwise you've got some serious
problems to deal with..... ;-)

Apologies if this is all obvious to you!
