[Alpine-info] External programs and job completion.

I use alpine on about 5 machines now, and they just about all use the same
config file. So I can't figure out why one of them doesn't consider a job
to be completed when using an external program.
My machine at work will allow me to hit return on a hotlink, which will
open firefox. As soon as the site is resolved, or probably earlier I
guess, Alpine shows a status along thhe lines of 'job completed' and I can
return to my inbox. At home though, the terminal window displays only my
command prompt and an empty line until such a time as I either close
firefox or hit ctrl-C in the terminal. Then and only then will it return
to the message I was reading.
This doesn't appear to be the case when viewing attachments.
