[Israel.pm] return after process is done

The system call waits for the process to finish, so it waits for rsh to
finish. On the other hand, if rsh is used to spawn jobs and then
terminates, it will return before the spawned jobs finish. In that case
you will have to get whatever program you used to wait for the spawned
