Are you sure there is just the one empty error dialog? When I try something
like this, I first get an error dialog with:

Could not fork to execute the following command: ...
Too many open files

Only after I close that one, CM continues, and eventually it hangs, sometimes
with an empty error dialog.

Colin, is there a particular reason why you used g_spawn_async() and not
g_spawn_sync() when reworking the actions in commit 52516eabc ? Originally, it
was done with fork()+waitpid() combo, which would block the whole program - not
ideal, but I don't think the underlying code handles asynchronous children
