I just ran into Scott's problem.

The problem is not that gnuradio-companion's popen() of .../top_block.py
is failing, it's that the popen() of the xterm executable, xterm, is
failing.

gnuradio-companion tries to open an xterm when you have a "No GUI" top
block.

$ sudo yum install xterm

solved the problem for me.
