xdg-open/gnome-open doesn't work if service isn't started

So xdg-open and gnome-open doesn't work properly with nautilus. I.e. this gives you no apparent effect:
$ xdg-open .
However running the command again works. It turns out that the first invocation starts up the nautilus service, but fails to tell it to actually open the folder. But the second attempt works fine as the service is already running.
