Hey Olivier,

> Running a console app within X without actually launching a console (ie an xterm) leads to a X lock (when X is started from a console, that doesn't happen when X is launched from xdm alikes). This is not related to xfce, but a more general problem that affects several X applications.

I would prefer no application at all so that the user can set what (s)he wants w/out running into such trouble, or even being disappointed to run a console app to read mails on a (so called) graphical desktop environnement.

Ok, I'm fine with that. Lets changed it to no app by default.
