you probably have the package "libzeitgeist-gio" installed which causes the same freeze while starting an application. we could fix/workaround it the same way here. (like bzr1638)

@Chris: It might be worth to rework the DockServices.System.Open () methods to fix this in a better way?

@Rico: regarding 1638, why did you put that Timeout in there and not into the system service? If you had done the latter, this bug would be fixed already...

Also, are we hacking around a ZG bug? Because this 'solution' in 1638 does not make much sense. Can you explain it?

@Rico: PS, I see you put a comment for the new code for 1638 to indicate it is a bug fix - in cases like this you should put the bug number as well in 2 yrs when we see this code and go 'wtf??' we can look up more info easily. ;-)

@Robert: I will work on moving this into services. Using a Timeout (or Idle) gives the control of this action to Glib so it can decide over the real execution moment. If there is another improper usage of a gio module this freeze shouldn't happen again.
I will try to add some more comments.
