I currently have three installations of Zope where I have never
physically touched (or been in the same room) with the machine it
is running on.  Everyone of them I started with ./start& through
either a telnet or ssh connection. I wait until the server comes
up then exit the connection:

       Zope version: Zope 2.2.0 (binary release, python 1.5.2,
       Python version: 1.5.2 (#10, Dec 6 1999, 12:16:27) [GCC] 
       System Platform: linux2 
       Process ID: 2240 (3076) 
       Running for: 186 days 13 hours 42 min 42 sec 

This one is almost 3,000 miles away.

So, I'm not sure why yours won't continue running, but it should.
