I can't reproduce that, can you give a step-by-step recipe?

The "open" tool should work fine.  If I do

  $ open /Applications/Emacs.app

I get the same Emacs as when I launch it from Finder.  I also get the
same groups.  "open" is basically a packaged AppleScript to ask the
Finder to launch a document, I believe.

Actually I use that method only for debugging, not for normal
startup.  It has some minor problems for everyday use.
