How are you calling this script? Logically, going back to your home directory is correct behavior. If you execute a script from command prompt, don't you get the prompt back once it is done (except in some cases involving exec etc.)? Why should this be any different?

If you are calling this from .profile, then instead of "scriptname", try "exec scriptname" - that should do the disconnect trick.
