Just to be precise, it must be sending SIGHUP to the child's process
group, probably using killpg() or similar.

I imagine many programs out there have this problem because the scenario
you're describing isn't anticipated. Instead, this is what nohup(1) is
for. You might try:

         ssh <args> <host> nohup /etc/init.d/opendkim start

...and see what kind of results you get.
