This continues to not work for me, and I believe my system is up-to-date Rawhide/koji.

Here is the top of the stack trace I get when running 'gdb gnome-terminal':

ERROR:terminal-app.c:1449:terminal_app_init: assertion failed:

Comment 4 Daniel Walsh 2011-07-11 16:21:44 EDT
I am seeing the same thing.  There has not been a new gnome-terminal built since April.  What am I missing?
Comment 5 Daniel Walsh 2011-07-11 16:24:01 EDT
> gconftool-2 -g /apps/gnome-terminal/global/default_profile
No value set for `/apps/gnome-terminal/global/default_profile'
Comment 6 Tom London 2011-07-12 09:26:45 EDT
Yeah, me too:

[tbl@tlondon ~]$ gconftool-2 -g /apps/gnome-terminal/global/default_profile
No value set for `/apps/gnome-terminal/global/default_profile'
[tbl@tlondon ~]$
Comment 7 Tom London 2011-07-13 09:46:59 EDT
OK, I think I figured out how to dig out of this hole....

Appears that the expected [gd]conf settings 'sort of changed'.

I did the following:

1. cd ~/.gconf/apps
2. mv gnome-terminal gnome-terminal.save
3. logout
4. log back in

gnome-terminal now starts for me. And,

[tbl@tlondon apps]$ gconftool-2 -g /apps/gnome-terminal/global/default_profile
[tbl@tlondon apps]$ 

Joy and bliss.....
