I looked at the running processes and rdesktop is not running a running process (I'm from the Windows world and what I just typed may be barking up the wrong tree...I just took a SWAG and assumed if it was running t=in the background I would still see rdesktop running but Linux may not work that way).
The problem is that you are in the same process group and get killed by
a signal when your parent shell exits. 'nohup' takes care of an
assortment of things that need to keep working. Try
nohup command &
The 'nohup' redirects output to a file and starts a new process group,
the '&' lets the shell continue instead of waiting, and the 'exit'
should close the shell window.
