Depending on your sshd_config it's possible for ssh sessions to hang on the server when a connection dies, if processes that were running continue to execute in the shell until sshd terminates the users session or just goes orphan I dunno but I would guess the latter.

Either way unless Carpetsmoker has more details, I personally would use at/cron instead (and have today) because they generally offer more dependable as in more well defined behavior in this kind of situation.
