in order to have a permanet ssh tunnel running I set up the following upstart job in /etc/init/ssh-tunnel.conf:

# ssh tunnel - simple personal ssh tunnel 
description "simple personal ssh tunnel"
author "My Name <My email>"

start on runlevel [2345]
stop on runlevel [01S6]

respawn
respawn limit 5 60

# Start the process
exec ssh -CND PORT USER@ADDRESS -i MY_KEY -o BatchMode=yes

When the job is running I am not able anymore to shutdown or reboot from lightdm.

Than you in advance for your help.
