[exec] menu items of the following form appear to have stopped working:

[exec] (foo) { FOO_OPTION=bar foo }

These have stopped working with the upgrade to 0.65 from 0.62x.

uname -a: SunOS woodstock 5.6 Generic sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-1

gcc --version: 3.0

GNU make 3.71

ld -V: Software Generation Utilities - Solaris/ELF (3.0)

as -V: WorkShop Compilers 4.X dev 18 Sep 1996

from the 0.65.0 ChangeLog:
- changed the command execution code (used to handle rootCommands and executable menu items) to be more robust... compound commands should now work
