gnome-open does nothing when run as asynchronous "shell-command".

M-! gnome-open /usr/share/pixmaps/backgrounds/gnome/translucent/tentacles.svg &

it just ends without error but also without opening the file.  It however works 
when doing the
same without the & but then emacs blocks and waits for gnome-open (or rather 
the program it
called) to end.  The same applies to dired's dired-do-shell-command (bound to ! 
in a dired buffer)
where this problem is also much more annoying.  I'm not sure if its an emacs 
bug or gnome-open bug
but so far i only had problems with it in emacs thats why i write to this 
mailinglist first.
Would be nice to hear about a fix or workaround.
