I'm trying to start up btdownloads from a remote terminal and then fork them
into background so I can logout and leave the torrents going.  I tried both
btdownloadcurses and btdownloadheadless by starting normally, seeing that my
downloads are all complete but wanna leve up for uploading.  I then ctrl-z
to get my shell and then I type 'bg' to background the torrent.  The problem
is, doing a 'jobs' always shows the process as stopped.  the bg command
apparently isn't getting the process to resume running.; I also can't it to
work with the '&'
sign after the command either.

The only way I can see doing this is to launch these torrents with consols
oat home and just leave them open for the day.  Is that my only choice?
