That's a clue. Maybe if the problem commands were to be wrapped in a
shell (i.e., "/bin/sh -e firefox") the problem would go away. This could
be because the command is indeed a shell script (just guessing). If that
is the case, the exec routine would have to test the command before
issuing the fork to determine whether it is a script or not...
