[h-e-w] dired-execute-file

User-agent: Mozilla Thunderbird 1.0 (Windows/20041206)

When press 'X' on a file in dired mode it starts the default program for this filetype, which is all very nice, but emacs is waiting patiently until this program is closed until I can do anything further in emacs, this makes it very unhandy as a general file browser.

Is there a way to get emacs to avoid waiting on the application?
