Comment 28 for bug 627195

TomasHnyk: also gnome-open should pass the timestamp to the application it wants to launch, but it does not (it uses g_app_info_launch_default_for_uri without any GAppLaunchContext that keeps the event timeout), and this is not possible to do since in theory the terminal should pass the enter-key event timestamp to such programs. An environment variable could be used instead.

However starting from Raring, also nautilus would highlight this problem when you open a location from terminal (the same doesn't happen when launched from unity), for the very same reason. When you open it from unity all works fine since we pass the event timestamp to the application.
