Well, what else do you expect?

You ran the driver in debug mode. I'm sure we have documented somewhere
that drivers will not background if you're running them with debugging
enabled. Omit the -DDD from the startup commandline and you'll probably be
fine for now.

Same here, this is how it is intended to work. Since you added the debug
flags, the driver assumed you wanted to see the debug output and won't
background then.
