Description of problem:
The discussion on the Limbo-list got me to try out transparency, but now I want
to turn it off and I can't.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Gnome terminal
2. Edit -> Current Profile, Effects tab
3. Click on Transparent background
4. Now try to click it off.

Actual Results:  The transparent background stays on.

Expected Results:  I expected to be able to turn off the transparent background.

Additional info:  I haven't tried this as the superuser.

It's a trap! ;-)

Just so we're all on the same page here, you attempted to disable transparency
by selecting "None (use solid color)" on the effects tab in the profile editor?
 (This confuses me because I can disable transparency without incident here,
which would lead to WORKSFORME.)

It is the "transparent background" button that I cannot turn off.  What 
actually happened is that I edited the profile and turned on the transparent 
background.  Then I closed the edit profile window and saw the black characters 
against the dark (transparent) background and decided to turn the transparent 
background off.  So I opened edit -> Current Profile and tried to turn off the 
transparent background; the button wouldn't turn off and the ---.xml 
configuration file still contained "transparent".

I will verify this with a different user account, but I don't have my Null 
computer with me today.  What is the WORKSFORME version number?

Oops, I see what you are saying.  I was trying to use the transparent 
background as a checkbox - click on, click off.  Duh.  As the little old lady 
on Saturday Night Live used to say, "Nevermind."
