This sounds like a race condition between Gnus launching the viewer and
the viewer opening the file. Apparently Gnus doesn't wait long enough;
there is probably no handshake, so Gnus can't tell that the file has
actually been opened. 

It works more often the second time because the viewer is in cache, and
opens the file faster.
