Description Bill Nottingham 1999-02-18 18:52:09 UTC
Each time I start gnome-session, my gnome-terminal preferences get replaced with: [Placement] Dock=Menubar\\0,0,0,0
Comment 1 Owen Taylor 1999-04-05 16:24:59 UTC
I can't seem to reproduce this bug - I can make changes to the gnome-terminal configuration and they get saved properly between sessions. Does this still happen with the latest GNOME? Can you give a sequence of actions to reproduce this?
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 1999-04-07 16:33:59 UTC
If I do something so that I don't exit the session properly (shutdown -r from an xterm, etc.), when I next start the session, the session-management saved ones have the right preferences, but any new ones don't.
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2001-02-01 17:00:00 UTC
This is back starting with beta3. Basically, every time I come in to work, I have to redo my preferences, even when all I do in between is a suspend/resume cycle. Is it tied to IP address somehow?
Comment 4 Elliot Lee 2001-02-02 19:30:02 UTC
Not IP address. I have seen it happen too, but just when I got a debugging version compiled, it stopped happening. The first step is to be able to consistently reproduce it without having to log out, by finding a config file that will cause this to happen all the time.

I've seen this bug appear when the /home partition has no available space.
Comment 6 Havoc Pennington 2001-07-19 23:02:45 UTC
Random theory: g-t per-session and per-class settings are simply really confusing. That is, I don't have ~/.gnome/gnome-terminal, just ~/.gnome/gnome-terminal-XXXXXX files. Anyone buy that? I can't see a single reason g-t would lose prefs but not other apps...
Comment 7 Bill Nottingham 2002-02-19 04:12:42 UTC
Closing. I haven't seen this in a while.
