If you run inside guake a root shell or a shell on a remote server, any other program can run anything there. Also, if you are running something like fdisk or innotop inside the sell, careless input may lead to a very undesirable results.
For this reasons --execute-command should be allowed only if shell in selected tab is not running any other programs, like ssh or sudo.
We should check if either pgrep -P is empty or all that processes are is stopped (T) state(for background tasks).
