Well, it's part of Mac OS X...

Well, it says so. But like dogs that bark too much it does not bite  
and kill a bit.

Maybe you don't know a shell's concept of foreground and background  
processes. Read the bash manual page (around line #2200, "JOB  
CONTROL")! I have no problems with background when using either tcsh  
or bash: they survive when their shell is killed.

It isn't pollution that's harming the environment. It's the impurities  
in our air and water that are doing it.
