-hold Turn on the hold resource, i.e., xterm will not
destroy its window when the shell command completes.
wait until you use the window manager to destroy/kill
dow, or if you use the menu entries that send a signal,
HUP or KILL.
Perhaps for the launcher command, like:
xterm -h -e xzy arg1 "arg2with spaces"
