gnome-terminal restores to 80x25 wtih tabs
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:52:07 EDT
Description of problem:
If tabs were present and a sessions is saved on exit, on next
login gnome-terminal with tabs collapses to default size.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a gnome-terminal window
2. Add a tab
3. Resize to 80x30
4. Log off, mark checkbox to save current setup
5. Log in
gnome-terminal starts to small size
gnome-terminal restored as it was
On a slow box you can see that windows with tabs in them start to their
requested (bigger) sizes, but then they resize themseves to small size!
This is probably fairly painful to fix... most likely the
same reason that you can cause funky resize issues by switching tabs
between tabs with different fonts, etc.
Will move to gnome.org (I own the bug there too though, yay me)
For the record, this is still a problem in gnome-terminal-2.2.2-1 ... without
tabs we're ok on restoring, with tabs it actually appares to size it down after
restoring properly. -Ali
Upstream bug was:
and is fixed as of gnome-terminal-2.7.2:
2004-05-10 Mariano SuÃ¡rez-Alvarez <firstname.lastname@example.org>
move the call to update_copy_sensitivity to after
the call to terminal_window_set_size. Otherwise
new tabs resize the window to the default 80x24
size. See bug #142366.
