There is something horribly misconfigured either about your X
libraries or about the X servers local to those user's systems if 
the processes don't close properly. My feeling is that the latter is
the problem, and you didn't even say what OS was involved there,
much less which Windows (assuming, here) X server they're using.

I routinely do this myself (btw, ssh -f is your friend on this, and
*may* fix the problem you're seeing, though I don't promise it)
without ever winding up with disowned processes. And I do it for 
Veritas, Oracle, and so forth's GUIs when forced to (read, when 
installing), though mostly just with xterm.
