When I use the "Run" dialog from the menu to type a command to execute, and I make a typo, I get the error message:

"Failed to execute child process "...." (No such file or directory)"

This message is hard to comprehend for a novice user. Instead I suggest an error message like "Could not run the specified command" (KDE 3.5 uses this)

    FWIW message comes directly from the GError after g_spawn_command_line_async, so is actually text chosen by glib for this condition.
