Some months back, in the "2.3.2_rc4" thread at:
we worked out a shell script that reliably execs an arbitrary command with the user's login environment by sourcing the right stuff according to the user's shell and carefully preserving command line arguments for the exec.
Jeremy was going to use this in the "open a terminal" etc menu items that the X server offers.
My reference copy of the script is available here:
and I attach a copy of the script to this bug for immediate use.
