Same thing for system-config-users (Administrations -> Users and Groups)

Comment 2 Raphael Groner 2013-06-01 13:34:47 UTC
Reproducible with Fedora 19 Beta XFCE and enabled updates-testing.

Possible work-around is to set Terminal=true in desktop file.

I think there are also other reports about this issue.

This bug is about LXDE and lxpanel and not about Xfce and xfce4-panel. It has nothing to do with system-config-users but with the way xfce4-panel and lxpanel launch apps.
