Not clear why it stops. nohup doesn't help for some reason too. This makes guard unusable as a background process.

So I have to open another terminal just for guard to run -- this is not cool.

You need to turn off the interactor to make it work. Add the following to your Guardfile

interactor :off

and it works flawless.
