(I don't use spider myself, though)
Have you looked for the menu file of 'spider'? How does it start the
I had a similar problem with xconsole: There are two different entries,
one starts XConsole (which complains about denied access to /dev/kmsg)
and the other uses xconsole (which works). Maybe there's a similar glitch

Another possibility:

temporary workaround. Maybe menu connects to the correct host by itself?
