Re: Detach Icedove from xterm itself called from terminal.

why use a shubshell for icedove, we expect to use the output for something? 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 for xterm.

echo exit > xterm -e 'icedove &' &

(untested - no X here)

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.
