show/hide menu causes Terminal size to decrease

Bug Description

Since upgrading to Ubuntu 11.10 and switching to Gnome Shell as my desktop environment I have found two issues with gnome-terminal...

(A) New windows open with a menu showing

I have the "Show menubar by default in new terminals" tickbox in the General tab of the Profile edit dialogue box unticked, but the menu still shows by default on new terminals.

(B) Show/Hide menu causes the size of the terminal to decrease each time

In the keyboard shortcuts I have "Hide and show menubar" set to F12.

When I repeatedly press F12 my terminal shrinks vertically with each iteration.


I am using Ubuntu 11.10

gnome-terminal is version 3.0.1-0ubuntu3 from oneiric/main i386 Packages

I expected the menu to not show on new terminals, and for showing and hiding the menu to not affect the terminal size.

What happened instead was that the menu does show on new terminals, and that showing and hiding the menu shrinks the terminal size.
