I received one suggestion: use `stty -hupcl`. However, this does not
seem to do the trick. However, if I fire up a sub-ksh, and then execute
my backgrounded jobs, that ksh does not warn me that I have running
jobs, nor does it kill my jobs as I exit that sub-shell. Why does ksh
not perform its "feature" in a consistent manner?
