OS: Lubuntu 13.10

I'm customizing the terminal launched by pressing ctrl + alt + t.

At first I thought that maybe the bug was within the GUI, I was editing the command with this steps:
alt + f1
preferences / Default applications for LXSession
Terminal manager
Command

So I went to edit directly this file:
~/.config/lxsession/Lubuntu/desktop.conf

For the 'Terminal manager', passing a simple command works fine, example:
terminal_manager/command=x-terminal-emulator --command="glxgears"

But, if you add options to the command passed, then it does not work, example:
terminal_manager/command=x-terminal-emulator --command="glxgears -geometry 800x600+100+100"

If run directly from a terminal, everything works properly, but the point is to set it as the keyboard shortcut.
