I've noticed if I run a program in the background then log out it stays running
for a while then seems to arbitrarily stop. 

If I run it with nohup then it seems to stay running.


I happen to be running a app server called Zope.  It is a program written in
python.  I'm using linux 2.4.21.

Those who do not understand Unix are condemned to reinvent it, poorly.
