Thanks Andre,

I just checked here in Linux Mint 9 (32 bit) and it works fine. I have
the problem in Mint 10 (64 bit), which is based on Ubuntu 10.10. It
happens 4.5.3-RC3 as well. It seems there's something "special" about my
environment. This also occurs when using launch URL to open a file in
the default editor. 

As a curious and possibly irrelevant aside, I notice that when I run the
command in the message box, "true" appears in the return field in Mint 9
but only in Mint 9.
