Wow, I was going to reply that the panel adds '-e' to xfterm4 when it 
executes in terminal, but it doesn't:      

  if (in_terminal)        
    execute = g_strdup_printf ("xfterm4 %s", cmd);        

I'm almost sure it did do so before ...

Anyway, this is a bug, thanks for making me aware of it. For now just
uncheck the option and run xterm -e "cmd args" yourself.
