Yes it still runs if I close the console. Doing 'acerfand &' doesn't work, it doesn't run at all.

Something is definitely deliberately killing it when I run it as part of the sysinit stuff. I'm exasperated because I got this script off the ubuntu wiki and it works on everything except ubuntu!

I'd post the whole script but it's quite long. If anyone thinks it'll help then I'll do it.
