Bug Description

I was using gnome-terminal on Ubunutu 14.04 when it crashed. When the crash notification message box appeared ("submit dump", etc.) there was an option to relaunch the terminal. I chose this option.

Git started exhibiting strange behaviours when trying to clone repositories, claiming it did not have permission even if ran within a directory with 777. Eventually I realised it may be a terminal issue and when I closed it and opened a new one from the launcher the permissions error disappeared.

gnome-terminal is an unusual app with a server and a client. I think it might be easiest if the Relaunch button would not show for crashes related to gnome-terminal.

summary: - restrictive permissions after relaunch from crash message box
