Open gnome-terminals are resized back to 80×24 when starting or stopping compiz

Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-terminal

Open a gnome-terminal, resize it to something other than the default 80×24, and then run ‘compiz --replace’. As compiz restarts, the terminal will be resized back to 80×24.

Sometimes this will also cause it to move to the upper-left corner of the screen.

Thanks for the report, it has been some time without any response or feedback in this bug report and we are wondering if this is still an issue for you with the latest release of Ubuntu the Natty Narwhal, May you please test with that version and comment back if you're still having or not the issue? Please have a look at to know how to install that version.Thanks in advance.

This still happens in both natty and oneiric when running ‘compiz --replace’.
