[R] WinBUGS GUI when using R2WinBUGS

Hi All,

I was using the function bugs() in package R2WinBUGS to call WinBUGS
under Linux, and the WInBUGS window always hangs up until the program
finishes. This causes a little inconvenience if I run a program which
takes a long time (a couple of days), because I cannot use "nohup
[command]" and disconnect from the server. If I do that, the WinBUGS
window will be shut off  and the program stops. So, I wonder if there
is any way that enables me to run R2WinBUGS (and WinBUGS) without
relying on the GUI, so that I can log off the server without stopping
the program.
