Description Tony Breeds 2009-09-02 00:05:31 EDT
Description of problem: In previous versions of Fedora I could run:
gnome-terminal --geometry 150x48 to get a terminal of those dimensions.  Investigation shows that the position portion of the --geometry arg is being evaluated:

gnome-terminal --geometry +100+100      # creates a terminal @ +100+100
gnome-terminal --geometry 40x40+100+100 # creates a 80x23 terminal @ +100+100

[tony@thor ~]$ rpm -q gnome-terminal
gnome-terminal-2.27.91-1.fc12.i686
Comment 1 Yanko Kaneti 2009-09-02 02:41:44 EDT
This is fixed upstream. 
http://git.gnome.org/cgit/gnome-terminal/commit/?h=gnome-2-28&id=9f8b6a3001b5c62e95367131ae9c7bc38a26c751

Should be in 2.27.92 or later.
Comment 2 Bruce Jerrick 2009-09-04 16:27:04 EDT
A workaround is to use gnome-terminal-2.26.2-3.fc12 from F12 Alpha.
