If it's reported as a text file by the 'file' command. Otherwise, the open-with 
dialog should be shown.

There were others ...

tooar is arranging a new subversion server, with enough bandwidth for general 
access. exists, but as of now, has no data. I understand tooar 
is quite busy, and it may be a little while yet.

In the meantime, the view freeze can be fixed by a 1-line edit in 
.../src/e2_task.c, function _e2_task_viewQ () towards the end (sorry, my line 
no's are way different now)

#ifdef E2_ASYNC
        //always grab mutex in case of error or other output message
        gdk_threads_enter ();
        gint res = e2_command_run (command, E2_COMMAND_RANGE_DEFAULT);
#ifdef E2_ASYNC
        gdk_threads_leave ();

The version you have incorrectly has gdk_threads_enter () again, instead of the 
gdk_threads_leave ()
