	I see.

	But, xfterm4 is one of the options that appear on the menu that
appears on the exo-preferred-applications programm. May be it is better
to eliminate this option to avoid the problem.

	I made a mistake. I mean the exo-preferred-applications plugin.
That is, on RC2 I cannot open the exo-preferred-applications program
from the settings manager, but I was able on RC1.
