If StarMenu works like Wharf, I'd use the -e switch in xterm to start it,

Exec "Myscript" xterm -e myScript &

I have the following lines in Wharf to launch a couple of non-X applications:

 *Wharf pine writeletter.xpm Exec "pine" rxvt -geometry +0+17 +sb -T 'Pine for
Geoff' -e pine &
 *Wharf slrn ThreePeople.xpm Exec "slrn" rxvt -geometry 99x36+0+38 +sb -T
'Slrn' -e Newsreader &

If this what you are looking for?
