1026    open        tcp       nterm

Port 1026 is opened by Gnome-Terminal and allows connections
from anyone. When someone is remotely connected to that port
the person on the local machine cannot open new
gnome-terminal sessions until they close the remote session.

Unable to replicate this in the test lab, but would be good idea to
check it out anyway.

I cannot duplicate this at all.  If you can still duplicate this,
please give more information to help us figure out what is
