Only first instance responses --class cmd line option

Bug #366776 reported by KonishchevDmitry on 2009-04-25

gnome-terminal (Ubuntu)
Ubuntu Desktop Bugs

Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-terminal

I am start several instances of gnome-terminal:
gnome-terminal --class=Class_1
gnome-terminal --class=Class_2
gnome-terminal --class=Class_3

If I run
xprop | grep WM_CLASS
I get
WM_CLASS(STRING) = "gnome-terminal", "Class_1"
for all running instances. So, only first instance of gnome-terminal responses --class command line option. All further instances "inherits" it from the first instance.

Please have a look at to know how to install that version.Thanks in advance.

Yes, it's the same, but it can be fixed by running gnome-terminal as
gnome-terminal --disable-factory --class=Class_1
gnome-terminal --disable-factory --class=Class_2

So, I think that the issue may be considered as solved. Thanks.
