When I tried this on 15.04, the tty and inode didnt: only the SID changed. Closing a gnome-terminal and reopening it got the same tty and SID. For *additional* terminals, they got new ttys and inodes, but if you close the one on /dev/pty/0 the file will dissapear. The next gnome-terminal you launch will be on /dev/pty/0 with the same inode as the old one you closed. Can you confirm?

Apologies for any typos, I'm on my phone.
