Subject: Ampersand, starting process in background doesn't work
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 303b
If I send a command to start a process in the background, the SSH connection doesn't die. It still has hooks to stdout and stderr of the resulting process. As a result, the SSH module can't start a process in the background on a remote machine. Net::Telnet is able to do this for comparison purposes.

The ssh connection doesn't know about the background command; you will need to close the ssh connection yourself.
