Description of problem:
gnome-terminal does not restore its correct size after saving the
session when logging out and logging in again. Please have a look at
the attached screenshots.

The strange thing is that after logging in again I can see the correct
terminal size for a short moment but finally its resized to the
default terminal size.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create several gnome-terminals
2. logout and save the session
3. login in again

Odd, it works fine for me.  Tested on two FC1 systems upgraded from RHL9.
Comment 4 Ryan Tomayko 2003-11-18 21:54:19 EST
I'm seeing the same thing here. FC1 system upgraded from Redhat 9 to
0.95 to FC1 with yum. Willing to guinea pig potential fixes.
Comment 5 Bernd Bartmann 2004-11-14 06:28:47 EST
I'm still seeing this problem now in FC3 final. After creating a clean
new user environment, setting my the gnome-terminals as I like it,
logging out and saving the session I still get a different layout of
the terminals every time after loggin in.

I'll attach two screenshots to illustrate the problem.

Hi Bernd,

Thanks for the bug report.  At the moment, the Fedora developers don't
have time to work on this particular issue. The best way to make sure
your problem will get looked on is to report it to the authors of the
program. Most upstream authors use a bug tracking system like
bugzilla, and more people who know the code will be looking at the bug
report there.

The upstream bug tracking system to use is:
http://bugzilla.gnome.org

Please make sure the bug isn't already in the upstream bug tracker
before filing it.
