That's strange... On my linux box, I can log out of all SSH sessions (I
don't "do" telnet for security reasons!) and my server stays up and running.
It almost sounds like the X session is checking to make sure the user who
started the session is still logged in and is using their defaults, but when
the user logs out, it doesn't know what window manager to use.

Let's say I start the vncserver from an initial telnet session.
Using the VNC server for Solaris 7, the same session "stays" open when
I start/stop the VNC client. So far it behaves as expected.
However, if I exit the telnet session which started the server, all
the desktop apps "disappear" and I have a grey backdrop. If I then
"kill" the server, the client says the server connection has been
I have tried "nohup vncserver &" with the same results, and started the
window manager /xterm in xstartup using nohup ---& as well with the
same results. .
Any ideas? I have a nagging feeling I have seen something like this
before 10-15 yrs ago, but memory fails.
