I recently had the same problem, on Arch Linux with Emacs 27.1. If you
run xdg-open from an eshell, the problem should be the same.  It should
also go away if you replace "xdg-open" with "setsid xdg-open".

I ended up doing

  (push '("\\.pdf\\'" . "evince %s") org-file-apps)

to solve it for my case. It would have been preferable to change how the
default app is being resolved from "xdg-open" to "setsid xdg-open", but
I haven't been able to.
