Paolo: Thank you for the bug report. I'm confused now and before we go any further, could you confirm:

  * Are we talking about the checkbox "Run in Terminal"
    https://launchpadlibrarian.net/69740677/Ubuntu_control_center_lucid_12_thumb.png
  * Or something else?

I am unclear what "Open in the Terminal" means if is not "Run in Terminal". Would be able to elaborate, or perhaps to post a annotated screenshot with an arrow, or highlighted area so that we are certain what is being requested.

I don't think there's a clean way we can support this. Running a
terminal, Ctrl-Alt-T, then the command is perfectly appropriate. Or
putting terminal in the launcher and using Super+n to launch it, then
the command, is also reasonable.
