They should be 'out of the box' as nohup is simply going to redirect
standard output.  You're probably seeing buffering at work. Are you
including the default newline or are you ending your print statements
with a ',' to suppress? If you're doing the latter, you'll need to
flush sys.stdout or run Python with a '-u' option to disable std(in|
out|err) buffering.
