sorry, neither of those will work in blackbox.  If you always open a term with
the same options (and never any other options) just follow that term's
directions for edting .Xdefaults or the like.  Otherwise, put the options in a
shell script and have blackbox launch the script.

Also, this would probably be better answered on the blackbox list than here in
