Syntacticly that's three command. A semicolon is like a newline, so its
as though you've typed:

  nohup cmd 1

Since nohup expects one command, you need one command. SInce you want
three, invoke the shell as your command:

  nohup sh -c 'cmd1; cmd2; cmd3'

Hi Cameron,

Many thanks for that gem.

I often find nohup very unreliable. I have had jobs fail submitted with nohup. I was thinking of switching to using screen. Maybe you could give that a try?
