Hey Alfredo,

Thanks for replying. I spent an hour or more verifying the bug then came 
to the conclusion that it only works with bash right now. If you look 
closely I use `zsh` (hard to tell); I don't know if it works with other 
shells like `fish` I guess I could confirm that , maybe someone here 
could run another shell that's not `bash` just to confirm.

Which is weird because when I was using Fedora 21 with GNOME 3 it just 
worked fine even with a custom command placed. (I'm double-checking as 
we speak, waiting for yum upgrade to finish running)
