Are you sure you're not in a nested rlogin, i.e.
xterm -e rlogin machine1
and from there you did an rlogin to machine2. When you type "~." it's seen
by the first machine, so the "rlogin machine1" terminates, which causes the
xterm to terminate.
If this is how you're connected, use "~~.". "~~" is seen by the first
rlogin, which translates it to "~" and sends it to machine2.
