 FileName if it were an executable. On Windows this means that it is 
 treated as a .com file if it has no .bat or .cmd extension and has 
 no MZ header. If there is Linux has some functionality that is more 
 like this behavour it should be used instead of executing shell as 
 shell interprets some other things on command line like redirection 
 like | or > that should not be allowed.

+May be fixing the windows issue is easy, but the linux issue is a no,
+no. What if you're running mono in a console terminal? what if...? The
+only thing that we could do something about is to provide some kind of
+wrapper that behaves like cmd.exe wrt file extensions and programs
+opened. For example, "cmd.exe /c something.pdf" will open acrobat
+reader, while for us it will fail.
+There used to be a bug suggesting the use of gnome-open or ksomething
+or... But it was closed as a WONTFIX. Which is the same that I would
+do with this bug except for the windows side of it.
