[JDEV] Why no debug with background

I would think the only reason not to do debug on background is that you
can't redirect the output to a file. If the builtin going to background
works the way I'd expect it to work, it would fork off another process
then exit the main process. This would cause the redirection of stderr to
stop after the process was forked... as least, I think it would. Does this
sound correct to anybody else?
