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.
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.
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.
Closing, because using
konsole -e '%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.
