I could not reproduce this problem.

False alarm :).

Comment 2 John M O'Donnell 2001-11-26 19:05:48 EST
.gnome/gnome-terminal contained a [factory] section, which is nolonger
supported - also a [dummy]section.  It also contained the new entries for
factory stuff.  With that in there it neith complains nor works...
so not it's out and it works.
