The examples at the top of that page don't make sense. If I start an xterm in 
an ssh session, and log out of the ssh session with the xterm still running, I 
expect ssh to keep running until I close the xterm. When I ssh into leopard, 
my local mail server, and forward the mail ports, the ssh session hangs on 
exit, because kmail still has the mail ports open.

When I shelled into zyxomma, I exited each program before logging out of ssh. 
I don't understand why one ssh session closed and the other hung.
