When /sbin/rc exits, all child processes, including daemons that have not
yet daemonized themselves (called setsid()), will be killed.

To ensure that a process is not killed, invoke it via nohup(1).  This will
work for all programs, not just daemons.

Another trick is to start the command via at(1), as follows:

  /usr/bin/at now <<EoF
  mydaemon
  EoF
