Is there any reason you need to run it in a script? Note that if you're
running it from a cron job or something similar, the script won't get
passed important env vars such as DISPLAY, and there's no way the new
instance of xfce-mcs-manager can start properly.

Not sure what you mean; xfce-mcs-manager is not multithreaded.
