Description of problem:
I run with a multitude of different profiles configured with different text and background colours corresponding to different system.  If I create a new profile and assign it background and foreground colours the changes are pushed to all open 
terminal windows. I must log out and log back in to recover the correct appearance.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open gnome terminal with multiple profiles with different colour schemes
2. create a new profile and change the color scheme
4. profit!

Actual Results:  all existing gnome terminal windows have their colour scheme properties changed to
match the new profile.

Expected Results:  Nothing, the profile should be created and existing shells should be unaffected.

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?
