This is happening, because all applications are launched with invoker, and invoker sets POSIXLY_CORRECT environment variable, which causes bash to start in posix mode. Temporary fix would be editing the fingerterm.desktop file's exec line as follows:

/usr/share/applications/fingerterm.desktop:
-------------------------------------------
[Desktop Entry]
Type=Application
Name=Terminal
#Exec=fingerterm
Exec=sh -c "unset POSIXLY_CORRECT && fingerterm"
Icon=icon-l-terminal

For some reason bash doesn't invoke correctly with just "env -u POSIXLY_CORRECT fingerterm", I don't know why. Invoker should however at least clean that environment variable after it isn't anymore needed in option parsing. Posix mode probably explains also other troubles with commands in fingerterm.
