Description of problem:gnome-terminal when started doesn't maximize like in
previous versions.

Version-Release number of selected component (if

How reproducible:Everytime

Steps to Reproduce: (all done as normal user)
1. sudo yum install devilspie
2. mkdir ~/.devilspie
3. echo '(if (is (application_name) "Terminal") (maximize))' > ~/.devilspie
4. devilspie &
5. Run gnome-terminal to test.

Step 3 above, have used Terminal and terminal and neither work.  Did work as
used above though on previous versions (at least in F8)
Actual results:gnome-terminal just opens in a minimized window.

Expected results:gnome-terminal should open in a maximized window.

Additional info:This may or may not be a bug, as maybe the way of doing things
have changed. But I got the above steps from someone familiar with devilspie few
months ago.  That way worked up until installing rawhide.  So don't know if it's
the package, different method, or something else?

"(application_name) "Terminal" sounds wrong to me. Here the application name
from gnome-terminal is the actual path which is also shown in the title bar:
Window Title: 'sebastian@HTPC:~'; Application Name: 'sebastian@HTPC:~'; Class:
'Gnome-terminal'; Geometry: 1404x1050+-2+2

Please start a gnome-terminal and start devilspie with the option "-a":
devilspie -a 
Then you could verify the shown application name. If it isn't "Terminal", it's
normal that devilspie isn't maximizing it.

FYI: For myself I use this one for gnome-terminal: (window_class) "Gnome-terminal")

It looks like Terminal or gnome-terminal doesn't appear in the window bar at
all, just mike@scrappy was all it showed.  I changed my file to show
window_class Gnome-terminal instead of application_name and that did the trick.

I'm closing this as NOTABUG because it's a configuration issue here.
