Anything in ~/.xsession-errors after the failure?
Comment 2 Havoc Pennington 2003-01-07 23:30:45 EST
Works for me. Sure you didn't do something like forget to chmod +x the script?
Comment 3 Gary Fidler 2003-01-08 12:00:23 EST
A script which works with "Run in terminal" unchecked, will not run with it
checked.  Security is not the issue.

The following error appears in ~/.xsession-errors when "Run in terminal" is checked:

Option --execute/-x requires specifying the command to run on the rest of the
command line

It definitely works in rawhide, I just tested with a fresh Phoebe install.
