When running the command 

   /usr/bin/xdg-open /home/cochard/tmp/scr.pdf

from a standard linux terminal or a shell terminal within emacs (M-x
shell) the file is open with evince.  However nothing happens if doing
it from an eshell terminal (M-x eshell).

Also if I visit (C-x C-f) the file in emacs, it is displayed properly;
the modeline says '(DocView)'

If I add the line 

   (setq process-connection-type nil)

to my minimal .emacs, then, upon 'C-c C-e l o', the file does open,
although not within emacs -- but with evince.  So it does not fully
solve the problem, but it is already a rather decent workaround for
me.  Thanks a lot!
