Running a program in the background from a shell in an xterm (and even
closing the xterm afterwards) works fine; indeed, that's how I launched
the instance of Icedove I'm typing this e-mail in.
What (per Tom H's mail) requires additional configuration (so, the
problem appears to have a solution) is getting that program to keep
running past the end of the login session.
