I edited mine by hand and locked it. The thing that's messed up about
it is if you enter a command like

xterm -fg blue4 -bg grey90 -e bash -c lynx\ -color &

and then resize the window, it munges it like this:

xterm -fg blue4 -bg grey90 -e bash -c lynx\ -color -geometry 108x36 &

which is illegal syntax, as the "-e" argument has to come last.
