That is a very good question/mystery.  I thought that it may have been
determined by the "Preferred Applications" setting.  However, changing
it to xterm on my system and logging out/in didn't recreate your problem.

I also thought that maybe creating the menu item embedded the terminal
command in the menu file/item.  That also proved wrong....

[egreshko at f13 init.d]$ cat
/home/egreshko/.local/share/applications/misty\ -\ ssh.desktop

[Desktop Entry]
Exec=ssh -Y
Name=misty - ssh
TerminalOptions=--profile Misty

So, I don't know what determines which terminal application will be used
by the menu.  I hope to have some time later in the day to explore as
this "bugging" me.  :-)
