The fish comes after the command almost immediately and now and then afterwards. You can also click the fish with your mouse pointer and it will turn and "swim back" quickly. While it swims back it does not know about mouse pointer any more. Additional info: The fish process does not show up in Linux processes so it is hidden into Gnome process.
