Ah, OK - I've got you.
You also need to run the script once you have launched rtl_tcp using the command in step 3) below.
The simplest way to do this would be to add a step:
6) Sign in to rPi with a new terminal session, leaving the old one open for now. cd to the directory where you created the script and then run it using this command:
./rtl-robot (or whatever you called the script)
You could run the script from the same terminal that you launched rtl_tcp from if you used & to force rtl_tcp to detach from the console and run in the background.
I'll edit the comments on the script to make that a bit clearer...

1) installed wiringpi (and tested as described on the developer site)
2) created your script
3) launched this command:
stdbuf --output=0 rtl_tcp -a 192.168.2.15 -p 1234 > rtl.data
4) used sdrsharp to connect to my raspberry (192.168.2.15, and it
connect ok, i can use sdrsharp ok)
5) nothing is displayed on the console of my raspy except the first 2
lines of rtl_tcp output
The rtl_data is created ok and looking inside that file i can see the
normal output of "rtl_tcp" (set freq blablablabla, etc...)
At the moment i've taken another approach...i've patched the rtl_tcp.c
to set the gpio directly...i'll post my "project" asap somewhere...
