Description Aristeu Rozanski 2012-05-08 17:32:20 EDT
Description of problem:
Every time a new window is created then closed, two file descriptors remain open
if at least one terminal window is open, growing to the point it'll fail to open
further terminals because the file descriptor limit is hit.

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

How reproducible:
Always. Open a gnome-terminal window then run:

[aris@napanee ~]$ ls -1 /proc/$(pidof gnome-terminal)/fd | wc -l

keep the terminal window open. Run it again from the menu or a key binding
and then close the new window. repeat the command:

[aris@napanee ~]$ ls -1 /proc/$(pidof gnome-terminal)/fd | wc -l

while there's at least one gnome-terminal open, the open file number will keep
