[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#481277: exo-utils: exo-open doesn't like constant parameters for WebBrowser

Package: exo-utils
Version: 0.3.4-6
Severity: normal

Using a commandline like sudo -u iceweasel-user iceweasel "%s" as the preferred application for the the web browser confused exo-open.  exo-open tried to execute just sudo (as detected by replacing sudo with echo and running from terminal), which doesn't work.  Other uses of preferred applications seem to be okay with this though (like the help browser).  It breaks the default web browser icon on the panel though.
