Hi Achim,

thanks for this input.  THis makes it more complicated.  Do you know how I 
would test this?  I do know about the variable window-system, but that will 
also return nil when Emacs is running in an xterm, even though xdg-open would 
be working in this case.

Since we are close to a release, maybe I should revert the commit for now and 
solve this with more time.
