Bug#112753: giFT daemon does not detach from tty
FYI to the packager: the giFT daemon does not seem to be deatching
itself from the terminal once it's started in the background. You
will probably have to patch the daemon to do this so that it can
be run at startup.
I'm not sure how to do this properly in ANSI C on Linux (or any
UNIX), but I know it involves an ioctl() call with TIOCNOTTY, or
possibily a call to setpgrp().
You may also want to create a patch that turns off or adjusts the
log level of the daemon (it is extremely verbose by default).
