I'm using 3.0.1-g1, since it comes packaged in a nice .deb, but
/usr/bin/icecat doesn't take an arg.  Apparently it's just this

cd /usr/local/lib/icecat-3.0.1-g1

The script[1] that comes with the firefox-3.0 package on Ubuntu is
much more complex, but most importantly it ends with:

exec $LIBDIR/$APPNAME "$@"

Also, it doesn't use `cd' anywhere and /usr/bin/firefox is just a
symlink to this script, so I don't understand why icecat uses a script
that cds to the lib dir and runs another script.  Why not steal [1];
it's GPLv2 or later?

[1]: /usr/lib/firefox-3.0/firefox.sh
