It probably stopped as soon as you started it; you just aren't
*told* about that until you touch the keyboard.  To see what I
mean, try this:
  - type "sleep 3 &"
  - wait 10 seconds or so; nothing will happen, even though the
    sleep finished several seconds ago
  - hit Return; only now are you told about the sleep command
    being done

This is a feature of the shell, to keep the "background-command
finished" notification from being lost in the output from some
other command.

As for why it stopped in the first place, I'm afraid I can't
help; I've never used pserver.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine. However, this is not
necessarily a good idea.
