I have a need to open urxvt with a certain program running inside it.

Apparently urxvtc has the same command-line options as urxvt, and is supposed to function as a drop-in replacement - the same as urxvt but only faster.

However, one important difference is that urxvt -e command stays running for as long as command is running; while urxvtc -e command exits as soon as the client urxvtc has contacted the server urxvtd. This early exit is a problem for some use cases. Is there a way to get urxvtc -e command to stay running until the command exits?
