this problem still persist. Also when you drag to resize window its working but then when yum set some Terminal window size it shrinks again. I dont see this bug in gnome.
It also only seems to affect gnome-terminal from gnome 3.x. I have switched to using mate-terminal from the Gnome 2.0 Mate fork and that works fine. So the bug is in Gnome 3, not in KDE.
Are you still seeing this bug?
RHEL 7 is approaching its Extended Life Cycle Support phase. Given the non-critical nature of this bug (there's always Konsole for KDE), it's not fit for RHEL 7 anymore, and KDE isn't part of RHEL 8.
Development Management has reviewed and declined this request. You may appeal this decision by using your Red Hat support channels, who will make certain the issue receives the proper prioritization with product and development management.
This no longer happens with current versions of KDE and gnome-terminal.
