OpenBUGS performs what kind of inference (answer is all lower case)?

Brief Description

Email from Rodney Sparapani:


I don't know who to blame for this bug.  I am using nohup succesfully
with SAS, so I have to wonder if OpenBUGS is somehow responsible.  We
need to do some long runs:  who doesn't, right?  So, I'm using
OpenBUGS 3.2.1 with GNU Emacs 23.3.1 and RHEL 5.6 with AMD64.  When I open a
shell buffer in Emacs and launch a session:
nohup nice time OpenBUGS < sim.bmd > sim.bog &

If I exit Emacs before the job finishes, then it abends...
OpenBUGS version 3.2.1 rev 781
type 'modelQuit()' to quit
OpenBUGS> model is syntactically correct
OpenBUGS> file sim.bdt does not exist
OpenBUGS> model compiled
OpenBUGS> file sim.in1 does not exist
OpenBUGS> initial values generated, model initialized
OpenBUGS> Command exited with non-zero status 1
11.61user 0.02system 0:15.67elapsed 74%CPU (0avgtext+0avgdata 
0inputs+0outputs (55major+2772minor)pagefaults 0swaps

I have looked over the OpenBUGS script and played around with it.
But, nothing I have tried prevents this.  Can someone replicate
this and/or fix it?  Thanks.
