From what i understood reading launcher.c, it uses xfterm4 -e 'command'
in a call to xfce_exec_on_screen() in
libxfcegui4/libxfcegui4/xfce-exec.c, which then calls
xfce_exec_create_argv(), and this functions removes quotes around the
command. (lines 228->235).
Apparently, xfterm4 calls exo-open --launch TerminalEmulator (only if
available i suppose) with the command given, but without the quotes.
So, where is the good place to fix this ?
Ps: i'm learning more and more about xfce reading this code :)
