Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-terminal

Hi. With the most recent upgrade of gnome-terminal, my session state (opened terminals in workspaces, tabs in terminals, etc.) is not restored on login. I rely heavily on the terminals I've opened and their tabs for my development and it is very bad for me to lose my session this way. Luckily, I had a backup of my session files and I downgraded to the previous version of gnome-terminal which fixed my problem. If this is an upstream bug, I'll happily file a bug to make sure this is fixed. Thanks.

Looks like an upstream issue, we don't customize the gnome-terminal besides including a new theme.
