Bug Description

Not sure if this bug was introduced by the upgrade from 17.04 to 17.10, as I am rarely using the terminal in maximized mode.
Issue can be reproduced - happens each time, even after a reboot.

It happens to me too.

I noticed that it happens when I maximize the gnome-terminal window, but not always: right now, I have another gnome-terminal, maximized, with 3 tabs, and the right-click (contextual) menu works well.

I also noticed that, when maximized and "demaximized" again, the right-click menu shows with more space than needed (as shown in the attachment).

Exact issue happens to me too. I haven't noticed it being intermittent. I think it always happens. When you resize the window it's ok. As soon as you 1-click maximize it, it happens.
