Ok, as a quick workaround, you can edit:


and put on the line X-XFCE-Commands the command you want.

When one add a new preferred application, it stores two things, the
“command with parameters” and the “command without parameters”. In the
later, it stores only the first word, that's why it doesn't work.

I'll report this upstream with a patch and ask for comment (I don't want
to break stuff in exo, which is kind of complicated and may break a lot
of stuff). In the meanwhile, the quick workaround above should fix the
problem until you go to the preferred applications window again.
