See this bug report for a description of the problem:
This affects the vte/gnome-terminal in Fedora Core 2.
Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
Closing due to lack of activity. Please open a new bug if this is still an
issue at bugzilla.gnome.org.
