It sounds like the programs are running as foreground processes, which will cause Workbench to hang until they exit - Workbench isn't multithreaded. To fix it, you need to put the "run" command before the program you want to execute, so the command to launch IconEdit (for example) would change from:

SYS:Tools/IconEdit

to:

C:Run <NIL: >NIL: SYS:Tools/IconEdit

Instead of running IconEdit and waiting for it to exit, the system now runs "run", which launches IconEdit as a background process and exits immediately, allowing Workbench to continue normally.

I think that's the problem, anyway.
