Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-terminal

This odd behavior started showing up a few days ago. I'm using the Ubuntu classic desktop (with metacity). I generally have two terminal windows open when I'm coding (I have a 2560x1600 display). When I open the first terminal, it opens at the default size of 80 columns x 24 rows. But subsequent terminals will open at 80x22.

If I close all terminal windows, behavior starts over - 1st terminal is 80x24, all subsequent are 80x22.

Actually this bug wasn't fixed in precise.
I'm using Ubuntu 12.04.1 with GNOME Classic and Compiz.
The behaviour is exactly the same: first opened terminal have the size of 80x24, all subsequent terminal windows are 2 rows less.
I've read the description of the bug #915241 which is marked as the duplicate of this bugreport, but I think that this duplicate status is wrong, as I've got versions of libgtk-3-0 = 3.4.2-0ubuntu0.5 and libgtk2.0-0 = 2.24.10-0ubuntu6, both of them are more recent than the ones mentioned as fixed, but the problem persists.
