        OK, it starts out this way : 

address@hidden ~]$ rpm -ql Terminal

address@hidden ~]$ ps aux | grep -i terminal | grep -v grep

address@hidden ~]$ Terminal &
[1] 8842
address@hidden ~]$ 

        ... And sure enough, it pops up behind the gnome terminal. So it 
still looks to me as if what I have, 

Terminal alpine -url %s

should work; but I admit I don't know what either that "-url" or the "%s" 
is doing there ...

        Might I need to close and re-open Pan?? Or log out and back  in??
