Permanent sshtunnel for mysql master/slave connection ?

I have a little script (on a Suse 10.1 server) that creates a ssh tunnel to
connect a MySql slave server with it's master.

The script does something like this:

while true; do
ssh -oBatchMode=yes -L 33306: -N root@someserver >>$LOG
sleep 30

The loop is to re-establish the connection when the netwerk connection goes
down for some reason.

This works ok, but when I run this script on a remote shell the script gets
killed when I close the shell. So should I make a script in /etc/init.d to
this a more permanent solution, or is there a better way? And I also have
feeling the loop isn't the best solution for the problem? ;)


Bye, Wilfred.
