gnome-terminal preferences get eaten

Each time I start gnome-session, my gnome-terminal
preferences get replaced with:
I can't seem to reproduce this bug - I can make changes
to the gnome-terminal configuration and they get saved
properly between sessions.
Does this still happen with the latest GNOME? Can you
give a sequence of actions to reproduce this?
If I do something so that I don't exit the session
properly (shutdown -r from an xterm, etc.), when
I next start the session, the session-management saved
ones have the right preferences, but any new ones
This is back starting with beta3. Basically, every time I come
in to work, I have to redo my preferences, even when all I
do in between is a suspend/resume cycle.
Is it tied to IP address somehow?
Not IP address. I have seen it happen too, but just when I got a debugging
version compiled, it stopped happening. The first step is to be able to
consistently reproduce it without having to log out, by finding a config file
that will cause this to happen all the time.
I've seen this bug appear when the /home partition has no available space.
Random theory: g-t per-session and per-class settings are simply really confusing.
That is, I don't have ~/.gnome/gnome-terminal, just
Anyone buy that?
