Description of problem:
gnome-terminal ignores the -e, --command option argument, thus it's impossible to execute a command in new window or a tab.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. execute gnome-terminal -e pwd
no output from the pwd is printed out
output from pwd is printed out
This option prevents other options like --window or --zoom from working, that's why the severity is set to high
gnome-terminal -e pwd
# Option “-e” is deprecated and might be removed in a later version of gnome-terminal.
# Use “-- ” to terminate the options and put the command line to execute after it.
gnome-terminal -- pwd
still doesn't execute the command in new terminal window
