This is a patch fixing the bug.

Simple patch to fix 'hup' section of man page
Will be proposed to upstream.
Proposed to upstream: http://bugs.gw.com/view.php?id=119
Accepted by upstream (tcsh 6.17.07b).
Technical note added. If any revisions are required, please edit the "Technical Notes" field
accordingly. All revisions will be proofread by the Engineering Content Services team.
The tcsh(1) man page inaccurately stated that the "hup" and "nohup" built-in commands, when used without an argument, can be used only within a shell script. The man page has been corrected: it now states that the hup and nohup built-in commands can be used when running the shell non-interactively.
