[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#513768: xfce4-panel: launchers in terminal don't work with some commands

Package: xfce4-panel
Version: 4.4.2-6
Severity: normal

I'm trying to create a panel launcher with several commands to run in a terminal. 
In my example, I need to change to some directory and then to run a perl script 
so that the command would be: "cd /path/to/directory; perl myscript.pl"
With this, a terminal opens but remains blank !
I actually noticed that even a single "cd /path/to/directory" yields the same result.
Such a launcher works in Gnome.
