#1396 closed bug (fixed)

Terminal parses the shell arguments incorrectly (easy)

Description (last modified by axeld)

When passing arguments to the Terminal, it parses them incorrectly before passing them over to the shell. For example, this is what prevents the debug_server from starting a gdb session when the debugged application has spaces in its path.

It should just copy the existing argument vector into the one it passes to the shell (minus its own arguments). For compatibility with BeOS, Haiku's libroot.so already memorizes the original arguments in __libc_argc and __libc_argv.
