I'm just guessing here, but follow my logic...
DSL recently changed default shells, from rxvt to aterm.
Most of the gtk2 apps I have contributed, I start with a
wrapper, something similar to start_gimp or start_gftp,
tucked inside /usr/bin.
The wrapper allows you to execute a process,
rather than open a shell, then run a process from that shell,
essentially leaving 2 shells open during the use of the app.
Also, a wrapper gives you environment options,
like exporting PATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH to direct
the seek of dependancies to certain directories.
I'm thinking here that the wrappers might need more
than just #!/bin/bash to startup the apps..
Or , perhaps the aterm opens as "Unnamed" by default?
Not an answer, I know, but food for thought.
Maybe change to something like this in the wrapper
" exec aterm -tr -T "gFTP" -e /usr/bin/gftp "
