I'm at a loss to explain what's going on here. I find that if you put
the following into the 'Command:' box for the launcher properties it
xfterm4 vpnclient connect xxxxx
Be sure to uncheck the 'open in terminal' box. I thought that checking
that box caused it to run xfterm4 and pass it the commands from the
launcher, which should accomplish the very same thing. I hope somebody
knows whats going on here!
