Hm.  Does this work:

    ./bin/domterm image doc/dt1.png

Another thing to try:

    bin/domterm --below new

If image works but '--below new' doesn't, I wonder if it could be Linux-dependency
in the use of Unix Domain sockets.  Some domterm sub-commands are executed
directly by the domterm process with the specified sub-commands; others look
for the domterm server that was started by the initial (terminal-starting) command.
The communication is handled by domain sockets.

I meant just plain:

   ./bin/domterm --browser

That is supposed to use the default system browser.

Looks like bug (in server.c) failing to quote/escape file names
(specifically spaces).  I'll look into it.
