Thank you for the suggestion. I am on OS X, but looking at xdg-open, it
looks very similar to the "open" command line tool I use.

Is xdg-open asynchronous (i.e., does it return immediately after opening
the file)? If so, how do you tell gnus to wait before deleting the
temporary file?

Thanks,

Alan
