If you're going to background it and kill the TTY, be sure to take care
of stdout/stderr/stdin:

    mzscheme -r file >  my-log-file 2>&1 < /dev/null &    # Bourne-like

    mzscheme -r file >& my-log-file      < /dev/null &    # C-shell-like

Depending on your OS, this might prevent some I/O blocking or errors
from blocking or terminating your program.  It might also preserve a
useful error message from MzScheme.

Or forget all about backgrounding and nohup and redirection, and just
run your program inside screen(1).
