Description Pete Zaitcev 2003-03-18 16:09:24 UTC
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):


How reproducible:


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
Actual results:

gnome-terminal starts to small size

Expected results:

gnome-terminal restored as it was

Additional info:

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 Suárez-Alvarez <msuarezalvarez@arnet.com.ar>

        * src/terminal-window.c(terminal_window_set_active): 
          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.
