Use a screenrc file that opens top in the first terminal and a shell
in the second? Then if you quit to exit top the other terminal session
will remain. 

This would be an excellent place to give you an example screenrc,
wouldn't it? Oh well. (If it is still helpful on Friday and I remember
to copy my one from home I can send it to the list. The syntax is not
too bad, however.)
