"Its all text" has the problem that its not accepting a command line but an
executable. You can't do "xterm -e vim", it bitches that its not an
executable. Also I believe you have to give it a full path. You're probably
going to have to give it a stand-alone executable such as gvim or something.
Or maybe write a little shell script.
