[Pkg-freevo-maint] Bug#511313: freevo: Problem running imdb plugin from command line

Package: freevo
Version: 1.8.1-3
Severity: normal

When running as a regular user (part of the freevo group):

freevo imdb -s test

I got the imdb usage message.

When running

freevo -d imdb -s test

the GUI starts up (and not as expected the imdb-fetch command).

In the /usr/bin/freevo startup script there's the following instruction:

exec sg freevo -c "$DAEMON.real $@"

The arguments expanded by $@ were not interpreted as one string (as sg
requires) but as
parts. I.e. only the first argument was passed to
the /usr/bin/freevo.real command and not all arguments.

Changing the command in the script as

X="$DAEMON.real $@"

and then

exec sg freevo -c "$X"

makes all things work fine.

There's a patch on Launchpad bug #314720.
