Ok, great. Apparently if you don't supply the "-n" switch, eggdrop
"de-parents" itself from k5start. Once it does this, k5start can't do
its job anymore.
There are a number of other programs that do this too, so I will add a
general note to the wiki page about this.

At this point there are many, many options for you to choose from. At
this point things are no longer AFS-specific, so I'll just make two
suggestions -- but others probably have better ideas, so don't limit
yourself to what I recommend.
1. If you supply the "-b" option to k5start, then it will background
itself. I think that in your particular case, this will get the
effect you want (giving "-b" to k5start is like NOT giving "-n" to
2. Another option is "nohup" (try "man nohup").
