Please remember that we have deferred enabling the
kill-processes-on-logout setting until at least F26.
How is your session timeout implemented? If it's $TMOUT in bash, that
shouldn't affect the _running_ command. Does it let you leave
long-running processes with screen or tmux?
I believe it's a setting in sshd. I will have to learn to run many
things in tmux/screen: certainly dnf, but also all the science codes
that we normally do. Actually, this will build our character: currently
we kind-of depend on getting lucky if the command happens to run in
background or knows to put itself in background on receivng a HUP.
