Run in Terminal problem

I defined TERMCMD="xterm'.

1.  Simply putting 'vpnclient connect "my profilename"'  with run in 
terminal checked did not work.  Leaving out the ' quotes did not work 

I simply put xterm -e 'my command string' and it works.

I think xfterm4 is getting confused with the quotes.  If I do this from 
a command line it works.

xfterm4 -e "vpnclient connect "Faculty-Staff Off Campus""

At this point I'll stick with xterm -e in my launcher.
