I have a Linux Machine in my apartment with x11 fowarding. It is
connected to the internet via dialup modem. I access X on Linux
Machine from my Laptop at work via SSH. Now when invoke xclock over
ssh, I have to type
in order to get the graphical clock to appear on my laptop.
How I have to type & after xclock? I thought that once xclock was
placed in the background, the shell would stop the xclock job when it
tried to read from the standard input. However it doesn't.
