All it does is call webbrowser.open(...), (or open_new) right?  It's a bug
in the webbrowser module or its setup if it doesn't return after launching
the page.  I just tried


with BROWSER=open in my environment.  It returned immediately, then Safari
popped up with the page.  Do you have the BROWSER environment variable set?
What does webbrowser.get() return for you?
