[Not a bug][1.32] Heretic yellow door, Vlaunch error

I just compiled version 1.32 on Ubuntu 9.10 32bit and when I run the game and play Heretic, there is a problem with the yellow door. When I get the yellow key, the door opens fine the first time but if you let it close, you cannot open it again. It seems to only happen with the yellow door and not the others. I also have a problem when using Vlaunch. If I try to run any game with Vlaunch it seperates the command line options with commas so it doesn't work (at least I think that's what is wrong). Here is the output when I try to run Heretic:
execvp(vavoom, -heretic, -iwaddir, /home/anthony/progs/vavoom/share/vavoom, +s_timidity, 0, +setresolution, 1152, 864, 32, +screen_windowed, 0) failed with error 2!
If I use the exact same options but without the commas it runs just fine. If you need any other info just let me know.

The yellow door bug is fixed in the latest SVN revsions, as for the other problem you are having, the right way to enter the command you wrote here is:
vavoom -heretic, -iwaddir /home/anthony/progs/vavoom/share/vavoom, +s_timidity 0, +setresolution 1152 864 32, +screen_windowed 0

I realized that I should try the latest SVN revision but haven't gotten around to it yet. Also, I should have mentioned that I can run any of the games if I go to the terminal and type the commands by hand. It's just that if I try to use Vlaunch, it doesn't work. It's not a big deal since I just wrote a stupid little Zenity launcher script to choose the games and options.
