comment ssh and shell through ssh : how to exit?
@Olivier: Yes, your main process will wait for the background process to stop before exiting. If you want something to keep running after you exit, you might want to try nohup. Not sure it works with ssh though, but give it a try it won't hurt.

comment ssh and shell through ssh : how to exit?
@Olivier: does the script start any background job it may be waiting on? Unfortunately jobs does not seem to return anything when in an ssh script. Example: ssh <yourusername>@localhost '(ls; sleep 10 &); echo Done; jobs' will list files, display done and wait 10 seconds before returning.
