Nohup command on Solaris

Hi,

I have a general question on using the "nohup" command. As far as I've got it, submmitting a job with no hang up specified, should result in the job running until completion, regardless of whether the session that submitted the job(parent) is still active. This is very helpful when doing support over a dail-in connection.

I have used this command many times on Dynix with no problems. But I have found that using it on Solaris is useless. A job will stop once the parent dies. Is this intended functionality? If so - how would you submit a job on Solaris, other than using the Crontab, if you know that the parent might die (lose connection)?

On a SunOS 5.6 box using ksh, I typed
nohup sleep 123456 &
And then I logged out. From another window I could see that my sleep process was still running.
