What I mean is, in the past I could run something like fetchmail (i.e. fetchmail -d 900), exit my shell, and it would keep running. Now when I run fetchmail in such a manner, if I try and exit the shell it hangs, and when I forcefully close the window, fetchmail goes along with it. Same thing happens with other programs. I know for certain that it used to work.
I'm doing exactly that with fetchmail, under Win95. I've had no
problems with it yet.
