yep... though, depending on the app and the circumstances (i have yet to
find truly predictable behavior here), the *only* way to do what you
want from a terminal and make sure it lives past the end of the terminal is:
nohup theapp &
of course, that leaves an annoying 'nohup.out' file behind. for future
reference, you can always run an app like that from the run dialog
(alt+f2 if you haven't changed the WM keybindings).
