Have a go with:
prompt# (nohup portupgrade -aF >& /dev/null) &
I think this should work (although you might need to enclose the
trailing '&' inside the brackets as well). Also you might not even need
the 'nohup' here because effectively the command is running in it's own
'forked' environment (though I may be wrong:).
Have a play, try starting something less volatile than portupgrade
(sleep 100 for example?), logging out, logging back in and seeing if
it's still running.
