I can consistently repeat this outside of Org.  I am trying with

1) (dired-do-shell-command "xdg-open" nil '("file.pdf")), the script
   runs and opens the pdf file.
2) (dired-do-shell-command "xdg-open &" nil '("file.pdf")), this runs
   the script too but the pdf is not opened.

(I know the scripts run because I turned on debugging in the scripts)

I'm assuming Org opens it asynchronously.  What lisp function does Org
use?  A weekly related issue: when following links to pdf files, I have
the same problem.  When following https links I have no issues, they
open in my web browser as expected.  Does org use a similar mechanism
when following links?

Any thoughts?
