Maximized Gnome terminal under Wayland
Description of problem:
Maximized window of gnome-terminal in Wayland does not stretch over the whole screen, but the size is constrained by its size increments (basically the size of the characters)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run gnome-terminal
2. maximize the window
There is a right and bottom tranparent border.
Maximized window should not leave any transparent borders around the window.
When I maximize the terminal window in Wayland session it gets transparent right and bottom border of size 9 and 14 pixels respectively (font Monospace Regular, size 30, screen resolution 1280x800). When I change the font size the transparent border size changes. There is no such issue when using standard X session, it draws an empty border between the terminal window contents and the window slider of the same colour as the terminal background.

Maximized Gnome terminal under X
Adding screenshot from an X session for comparison.
looks like size increment to me.
Basically, gnome-terminal enforce a size increment based on the characters width/height so that the window always remain a multiple of a character size.
On X11, most window managers (including metacity and mutter) will simply ignore that size increment when fullscreen/maximized.
Maybe the same should be done in Wayland.
Opened a bug upstream and attached a patch there:
Fix has been pushed upstream.
Still in F23 beta.
When the gnome-terminal window is maximized, and you open a new tab, the terminal becomes one line longer. So the bottom line disappears off the screen. The terminal should resize one line smaller to cater for the tab bar, like it does on X11.

Err nope, works fine here on F23.

Oh wait, there's more - now maximization works fine until a key gets pressed and then the windows shrink, looks like a regression then...

I have a patch for maximization in Wayland (but it's a bit of a hack), the problem is with tiling (maximized left + maximized right) because Xdg-Shell client protocol has no partial maximization nor tiling so it cannot be mapped to those concepts in GDK.
