Not entirely true. After you bg(or background) a process, you can
disown it, by typing disown right after you type bg. Or disown will
take a shell pid(its always %n where n is the number of processes
running under the shell). I think it will also take system pids, but
I'm not sure. man disown for more info on it.

Yes, screen is absolutely fantastic. Any machine I work on must have
screen installed or I tear out my eyes.
