Comment 73 for bug 621927

gnome-terminal sets TERM for you. And Guake never set it, libvte did,
which is what changed. I made some instructions on how to work around
this before it was fixed in GDM. Assuming you use Ubuntu (or other
flavor which has profile.d) follow them:

Othewise change it so that you add the line directly to /etc/profile.

That should fix it.
