The problem seems XFCE-related : setting Terminal=true in pidgin's desktop file reproduces the problem as well, so I am going to open a bug against XFCE as well. The fact is, wings is the only application in my system to ship with a Terminal=true entry in its desktop file.
Comment 1 François Cami 2008-09-14 12:03:19 EDT
Note, this is only reproductible if the Terminal set in XFCE's "Preferred Applications" is KDE's konsole ; everything works as expected with XFCE's Terminal.
Comment 2 François Cami 2008-09-14 12:21:31 EDT
Since this seems to be related to using XFCE + Konsole, I've opened https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=462232 .
Please feel free to close this bug if Wings 3D really needs being launched in a Terminal.
Comment 3 François Cami 2008-09-17 00:16:17 EDT
Closing, because using 
konsole -e '%s' 
instead of 
konsole "%s"
makes Wings work again. However I still do not see why it needs to be opened in a Terminal, except for the debug information.
