Yes, I know that.. But I'm just wondering what might have caused the problem, 
since I haven't changed a thing myself, only the 'usual' upgrades through 

Earlier the 'Run command' box also showed the icon of the program you were 
(trying to) start, that it has stopped doing too. I guess something broke in 
unstable ;p but that's to be expected from now and then. Ah well, i'll just 
keep launching things from the xterm then for now.
