I've cleared the way for an AS config weekend and this is the first in what may
be a lengthy series of nagging *post RTFM* questions. Many thanks in advance.

With a "locally" compiled 1.6.6 on RedHat 5.2, intel:

I can launch a "top" from Wharf with:
*Wharf top cpuchip.xpm Exec "-" aterm -tr -e top &

But trying a similar thing with "ps":
*Wharf ps Gear.xpm Exec "-" aterm -tr -e ps au &
results in the aterm popping open for a split second then closing. I've tried
ps without the switch (ps doesn't use a leading dash for switches although I
tried it with a dash also.) I tried without the "&". I tried without the -tr. I
tried rxvt. I tried .....

I can, however, simply launch an aterm, do a "ps au", and there it is.

Any clues?  Thanks, Dave.
