Description of problem:
If you have 2 or more tabs open in a gnome terminal, one tab pref has
a scroll bar, and one tab without a scroll bar. Everytime you switch
from the non-scroll bar tab to a tab with a scroll bar, the terminal
window grows width wise the size of the scroll bar.
Recreatable every time, have two type of profiles, one with a scroll
bar, and one without. open a tab of each in one gnome terminal
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up 2 gnome profiles, one with the scroll bar on the right side,
second profile with scroll bar dis-abled
2. open gnome-terminal with scroll bar profile, open tab in same
terminal with profile without scroll bar (or vice versa)
3. Switch between the 2 tabs.
Actual Results: The gnome terminal grows the width of a scroll bar
with each switching of tabs
Expected Results: The terminal to stay the same size
