I know what you mean, but that seems either to send the exit command
before the icedove or maybe it send the exit command to icedove itself,
because nothing does appear on the task manager (and I'm lacking a debug
feature to see what is happening). Double quotes aren't working neither.
why use a shubshell for icedove, we expect to use the output for
better use single quotes to protect the `&' to be parsed by the shell
and to prevent from word splitting, so we keep it as one 'word' option
echo exit > xterm -e 'icedove &' &
(untested - no X here)
