Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-terminal

man gnome-terminal lists 15 options, not counting aliases.

gnome-terminal --help lists 24 options, not counting aliases or help options.

So the man page needs to be updated to include the missing 9 option: --window, --tab, --use-factory, --startup-id, --full-screen, etc.

Version: 2.24.1-0ubuntu1

Let's have this handled upstream. We have much bigger fish to fry for lucid still.
