Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 669692
Size of tabs get smaller and smaller; tabs don't keep their size
Last modified: 2011-03-16 17:54:22 EDT
Description of problem:
I opened a gnome-terminal and some 8 tabs in it, when I opened the last tab their size was something like 70x14 (not 80x24). Resizing each individual tab to its 80x24 size doesn't help (much), other (already resized) tabs shrink when I do that.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Tried with two gnome-terminals, same results
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open several tabs in a gnome-terminal
Normal size tabs
I have the same problem. I can add more information:
this happens every time you switch focus for a tab. So in Horst's example because he opened extra tabs each open caused a focus change. But if you continue to switch tabs, doesn't matter how - keyboard shortcut, clicking the tab title, they reduce in size. I think the reduction is by 1 row and 1 column (even though it doesn't fit with Horst's example above).
It isn't related to the window manager (happens without a window manager running in fact)
doesn't happen if gnome-terminal is maximized.
doesn't happen if you have a single tab (ok, not very enlightening).
This no longer happens with version 2.33.4 of gnome-terminal.
gnome-terminal-2.33.4-2.fc15.x86_64 under xfce4-4.8.0-1.fc15 here. It does still happen.
gnome-terminals work fine here.
Horst, are you saying this bug can be completed?

Sorry, Gnome is completely dead for me right now.
Running gnome-terminal under XFCE gives all sort of resizing weirdness
Start: 80x24 ~~-> 32x24, click on lower frame ~~-> 31x2
Just tried in 15 alpha on x86_64, updated for today. I installed Gnome, XFCE and LXDE. For some strange reason, Terminal (XFCE) shows up twice in the menu. Terminal works fine under Gnome shell, gnome-terminal started from a Terminal shows the weirdness noted in comment 6.
This is the same as the other bug I reported for this.
