[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#863851: xfce4-terminal: command and execute options do not work

Package: xfce4-terminal
Version: 0.8.4-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

the command and execute options have no effect. Invoking either:

xfce4-terminal -H -c ls
xfce4-terminal -H -e ls

results in a blank held terminal window. Without -H the terminal does not even appear, but this is expected as a short-running command may exit before the window can be created.

The corresponding xterm command works just fine:

xterm -hold -e ls

Kind regards,
