[ut3] Running in background

I like screen for single instance testing, but usually you want to  
get the thing going under the service/daemon infrastructure for your  
distro, since these often can check for crashes and restart the  
server, etc.

A way to fake that, being that I'm pretty lazy about learning such  
things, is to have a crumby bash script for monitoring the server  
that can be run in cron every minute...  The logic of the script is  
simply: If there's a file with a PID check for the server there.  If  
the server's down, run it again and record the PID for later  
monitoring.  If there's no PID file, start the server and record the  
PID for later monitoring.
