Thanks. I got it to work by creating a subclass. Unfortunately, it will take
more work to make it more useful than MrLib Terminal since what I really want
is something which will support running commands interactively created by GUI
elements. At this point, I can only run one command and then create a new
terminal object in order to run an additional command. I will probably get
back to this later.
