It works for me.  I did an rsh from a Solaris-2.4 box to a linux-1.2.13
(Slackware-elf-beta), and the rsh command retured immediately, and there were
no processes left in either side except the xterm.  I did

% rsh -n bolyai 'exec xterm -d :0 <&- >&- 2>&-'

But it worked without the -n as well.

zsh version on the Solaris box is beta11-test7-hzoli11, and on the target (the
Linux machine) it is beta10-hzoli10.3.

I also tried rsh from one Linux to an other and it also worked.
