Comment 16 Satyabrata Maitra 2008-09-19 05:25:35 EDT
Tested this bug in RHEL5.2 Server, on i386 and x86_64 Arch so far!

Component Version tested : gnome-terminal-2.16.0-5.el5

Observation :- 

In i386 Architecture, its fixed. Tried 6 times to reproduced with the proposed rpm of the component mentioned here. But Its not reproducing there in i386.

It behaving strangely and reproducing randomly in x86_64 Architecture with the same version of the component. Sometimes opening new terminal in full-screen mode and sometimes in normal mode!

Bug is not fully fixed yet, I think.
Comment 17 Behdad Esfahbod 2008-09-19 16:27:22 EDT
I find it hard to believe that it's fixed on one arch and not on another.  Make sure you close all gnome-terminal instances and open again, otherwise the new terminal will not be running.  Worst case, a restart may be tried.
