Description of problem:

... and try to switch between the channels using alt+1 and alt+2.
This will be part of gnome-terminal-3.14.3-3.el7 once I manage to build it after playing the tagging game.
Great! I confirm this is working fine with the latest package.
Thanks for quickly fixing the regression.
