Ooops, ignore that last post. It works. Thank you :)

Thanks for the info. Good to know disown is a good solution. Is there any way to use disown "inline" like nohup? Looking at the manpages it doesn't appear so :(

Good information. But the zsh one doesn't work. Is this a drop-in replacement for my command? Or do I need to do something else differently?

Oh, it works for me with bash. So zsh is to blame?

I'm actually using zsh 5.0.2 (though I wrote "bash" above). What happens when you do it? What version of bash do you use? If it works for you I should try that out myself.

comment Pipes & redirection binding precedence with disjuncts, conjuncts etc?
Thanks for the detailed explanation on the role of (..) and {..}. I had concluded from previous bad experience that round brackets were only used in the context of "dynamic commands" (i.e. $(..)) since I could barely get them to do anything as far as associativity was concerned.

Very helpful - I'd mark this correct if it was a response. Just one more question - how do I alter precedence? In theory I think {...} should work. I might have tried it unsystematically and not got the expected results.
