Package: xterm
Version: 6.8.2.dfsg.1-6
Severity: important


after upgrading to xorg in on an etch / testing system I observed that
the -e option has problems with spaces in the argument of the option:

  $ xterm -e "vi"

works, while

  $ xterm -e "vi test"

fails.  I was able to verify this with several other examples.
Feel free to ask for further information.  This might break several
other applications.

Kind regards and thanks for maintaining xorg packages
