That doesn't help in the console window, only in remote sessions.
The daemons already do that and nohup(1) - which is that wrapper -
doesn't help either in the console window.
I'm somewhat surprised. I'm using remote sessions all the time and
I'm starting my daemons as services so I didn't realize that problem
in NT before.
