I think you misunderstood me. I also have to correct you, putting
Exec=Eterm && Eterm into a desktop file works perfectly fine when
starting from the menu or from startup/.order, it starts a second Eterm
after the first is finished. My real problem is described below, when
using the remember option: "Start this program on login" it does not
work, because e does not use the .desktop file entry to start the
program, but the command from the window properties. Also when it uses
that command when it starts the program at login, all whitespace is
lost, thus if you started the program with options it now cannot find
the command. I'm asking why e is not just using the command from the
corresponding desktop file when setting "Start this program on login".
