[Pkg-lxde-maintainers] Bug#851786: pcmanfm: Terminal emulator command arguments ignored in Preferences -> Advanced

Package: pcmanfm
Version: 1.2.3-1.1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

When F4 is pressed within PCManFM, this executes the command typed into the
'Terminal emulator' text box in the Advanced section of Preferences.

When I have typed: /usr/bin/lxterminal --geometry=150x55 into the Terminal
emulator text box, PCManFM ignores everything after the '/usr/bin/lxterminal'.
When I do 'ps aux', it only shows the 'lxterminal' part of the command and no
arguments behind it.

When I type /usr/bin/lxterminal --geometry=150x55 into an already-open
terminal, the command works correctly.

I have tried surrounding the whole command in double and single quotes, which
yields the same wrong behavior.

The newest version of PCManFM does not appear to have this issue, however it is
not provided with Jessie.

Thank you,

Will Brokenbourgh
