[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#423276: xfrun4: Fails to interpret ~ as home directory

Package: xfce4-utils
Version: 4.4.1-1
Severity: normal

xfce4-utils' xfrun4 utility does not support the use of ~ as a prefix
that is translated to the home directory. Interpreting ~ is
implemented by nearly every Unix shell, and is expected behaviour from
applications that are a "shell substitute".

xfrun4 should support ~ as a prefix that is translated into /home/foo.
