The behavior was already changed in git master:

Comment 2 Jaroslav Reznik 2015-03-03 16:10:29 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 22 development cycle.
Changing version to '22'.

More information and reason for this action is here:

Comment 3 Egmont Koblinger 2015-05-06 08:13:20 UTC
The bugreport is about vte291-0.38.x and gnome-terminal 3.14 which removed this feature; not about vte3-0.36.x which is used by gnome-terminal <= 3.12.

Comment 4 Pete Zaitcev 2015-05-06 14:19:40 UTC
I don't understand. For me, the sequence of events was:
 - I installed Fedora 21. The double-clock broke.
 - I installed Fedora 22. The problem is gone.

I verified retroactively, and F21 has (broken):

F22 Beta has (working):

How is this possible?

Comment 5 Egmont Koblinger 2015-05-06 15:47:42 UTC
Gnome-terminal >= 3.14 does not / can not use vte3 <= 0.36.  Instead, it uses vte291 >= 0.38.

vte291-0.40 (as currently in Rawhide) changed the set compared to 0.38, and allows it to be customized again (gnome-terminal 3.16 has a hidden dconf setting for this, not available on the UI).

Comment 6 Egmont Koblinger 2015-05-06 15:53:49 UTC
... that is, the bug could be closed as fixed, but the "fixed in version" should point to vte291-0.40...

Comment 7 Fedora End Of Life 2016-07-19 19:02:56 UTC

security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
