Hmm... you are just running it like "rc5des" from the bash command-line?
If so, then how do you logout?  You probably want to be running "rc5des
&", then when you logout it shouldn't be killed -- but it might be anyway.
Run "nohup rc5des &", just to be on the safe side.  (Explanation, for
those inclined: on exit, the shell normaly sends a "hup" (for hangup)
signal to some of the processes that it spawned (I'm unclear on the
alogrithim that it uses to decide which).)
