Thanks for looking into this issue. Please, consider the following

I did not update the patch since Eli had some objections (unclear to 
me). I wrongly added :noquery expecting to get a process completely 
detached from Emacs, something like result of "synchronous"

     (process-file-shell-command command nil 0 nil)

on linux (on stackoverflow I have seen a note that w32 requires special 

Notice that "pipe" asynchronous Emacs processes have a problem with CPU 
consumption if a process does something like

exec 1>&-
exec 2>&-
sleep 30

Though I believe even silently killed on exit children and CPU-hungry 
Emacs in rare cases are better than decade old pseudoterminal+SIGHUP 
problem with xdg-open. I suppose, it is an Emacs bug, note Gnome or KDE
