I do the following which uses the sawfish prompt function (I bind it to C-t C-!
to keep it similar to emacs):

(require 'sawfish.wm.util.prompt)

(defvar jh-exec-history (list)
  "List of previously executed items.")

(defun jh-prompt-for-exec ()
  (let ( (e (prompt-from-list jh-exec-history "Execute: " nil t)))
    (delete e jh-exec-history)
    (when (and e (not (string= "" e)))
      (setq jh-exec-history (append (list e) jh-exec-history))
      (system (concat e "&")))))
