gnome-terminal-server --help does not include option --app-id

Bug #1747314 reported by Peter Benjamin on 2018-02-04

gnome-terminal (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Below is the current full usage info, and the option --app-id is missing.

Also, while in that section of the code, please consider adding --version option.

I had to learn of this option via other means. The reason is when gnome-terminal-server crashes it takes down all gnome-terminals that I have created in "Startup Applications".

[The crash appears to be caused by mouse clicking on the minimize icon of my ssh session, but I have not enough info to file a bug report on that. Ubuntu 16.04 LTS - GNOME Terminal 3.18.3-1ubuntu1 ]

[I am filing another bug within minutes, about the app-id option not accepting digits after a period. That bug report will include the script I am using.]
