I just created a test sh script, chmod +x and added a "Application in
Terminal" menu item, and it runs ok. Something else is stopping your script
from running. Any error-dialogs popping up, or no messages?
Open a terminal, menu Edit -> profile preferences, on the Title and Command
tab, select the option to hold the terminal open when the command exits,
that way you can see any errors if they're script related.
Also use the "sleep x" command to pause a script, for debugging problems, x
the number of seconds to sleep.
