So, if I'm in runlevel 5, login should start it, correct?

Except that the more I think about it, the more I'm back to my original
problem: if it automagically starts it, why does it not automagically STOP
it when I log out, the way it does every other of my processes, except for
something I explicitly backgrounded (I mean, I remember when I had to
nohup things like that)?
