Question Genesis: how to get it to execute ARexx script when it goes online?

Hello,
I'm trying to get Genesis (OS 3.9) to execute an ARexx script (REXX:CorrectClock.rexx) when it goes online. So, in Genesis prefs for the interface, events, online, I have selected "AREXX" as the type, and entered "REXX:CorrectClock.rexx" as the name of the script, but nothing happens when Genesis goes online.

If I run the script from a shell, it works as intended. I tried turning on logging in Genesis; but the log online contains "interface online" and "interface offline" events, even if I have set it to debug. Not a very good log, IMHO.
Any help?

Try type = DOS and Command = sys:rexxc/rx rexx:correctclock.rexx

Unfortunately, that doesn't work either. It works if I type the command in a shell, but Genesis doesn't do anything with it. Strange.
