it should, you could make sure of that by nohuping it:

$> nohup mpg123 http://localhost:9000/stream.mp3 &

but someone has mentioned that mpg123 fails now and then, so I think you should use the script
with the loop. if you do that, make sure you dont run the mpg123 in the background from the
script, otherwise you'll quickly have hundreds of mpg123 processes running ;)
