G'day there Brian,

I thought I'd seen a terminal do this on Window Maker, but I'm not sure
what terminal it was nor what app I was using at the time. I had a look
at a few different terminals at one stage and I've no idea what it was.

Oh. I wasn't aware that it left files behind. Damn!!

Now there's one I'll have to remember. I use it from the right click
menu, but wasn't familiar with the [alt+f2] combination. I think I need
to learn some of these keystrokes now that I've come back to xfce. I
tried it before, but for various reasins I went back to WindowMaker. I
prefer the xfce interface, and the newer xfce version is just great.
