[erlang-questions] -detached works until I exit shell

I have an erlang app I run with -detached and it works fine until I exit
the shell I ran it from.

I'm on xubuntu, and run

erl -name  -pa /my/ebin -s module -setcookie somecookie -detached

I first used startup scripts in xubuntu but I couldn't get to the node.

I then tried running emacs in daemon mode, run the app and then
ctrl-x,ctrl-c to get out of emacs, but leave it running, but when I do that
the app stops responding.

Anyone know why?
