Folks clever enough to do that might just as well use xterm with the
hold option in launcher specifications. If the suggested changes to the
variable or script is made, they should be aware that an expected
behaviour will change with the "-hold" argument. "xterm -hold -e top",
for example, will run "top" but the "q" command to "top" will just
freeze that terminal and it will have to be closed with the window
manager or xterm menu (Ctrl-left_mouse_button --> Send KILL...) instead
of just exiting "top" and closing the xterm with the "q" command.
