Yes, daemons usually close their relations to the terminal and then set
their controlling tty to be /dev/null, among other set-up operations.
This ensures they won't get terminal-related signals.
What I don't know is if the parent process finds out that the child
process closed the connection to the terminal.
Then again, if it's a daemon, it'll fork(), so the sentinel will exit
after it's only child does.
