Do I really need this much complication just to exit the script and
let a child handle the pop-up?

I've changed this line, and the parent still doesn't return, and the
script waits until the child ends before resuming to the next step:

if os.fork():
        #BAD? sys.exit(0)       
        os._exit(0)
else:

Thanks.
