Before I report as a bug, I thought I would ask and see if anyone else
has seen this.   

I'm using the following code and I've found out a few things..

System.Diagnostics.Process proc = new System.Diagnostics.Process();
proc.StartInfo.FileName = sFile;
proc.StartInfo.Arguments = sParm;
proc.StartInfo.UseShellExecute = true;
proc.StartInfo.RedirectStandardOutput = false;

1. On Linux and OSX the WaitforExit doesn't work nor error, but on
Windows it waits till I close UltraEdit before continuing.

2. On OSX file association for instances passing
"/users/gavin/Desktop/notepad.txt" as the sFile never does anything, but
on SUSE and Windows it launches the right application to view the txt
file.   Yes, the file is there on the Mac, I'm using a messagebox to
show me what file it's about to execute before it executes it.  Yes,
when I double click the notepad.txt it launches in TextEdit.

Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?
