    This isn't so much a bug report as a suggestion.  I just downloaded
    emacs from cvs yesterday.  I really like the dired viewer that allows
    the spawning of external viewers for certain file types.  However,
    emacs seems to have to wait for the process to die.  Is there any way
    to start a viewer and then cut it loose?  It would be nice to view a
    pdf in xpdf and still be able to use emacs afterward.  Thanks.

! xpdf * &

is probably the most convenient available way.  I do not know whether
this is convenient enough for your purposes.
