Package: xfce4-terminal
Version: 0.2.6-2
Severity: normal

Hi there,

I'm using xfce4-terminal to run vim as external editor in Sylpheed.
The command line I give is

	xfce4-terminal.wrapper -e vim %s

but the terminal windows seems to be spawned before the temp file is ready, and
as a result I can't edit the mail in vim.

This works perfectly if I use gnome-terminal.wrapper (except for the fact it
takes a looong time to start ;) and also if I make a copy of
gnome-terminal.wrapper and edit the last line to make it run xfce4-terminal

I'm no Perl guru, so I can't help fixing the bug.

Thanks in advance.
