Bug Description

Binary package hint: xfce4-terminal

Ubuntu Maverick beta to release candidate.

In terminal Edit --> Preferences --> Advanced --> $TERM setting appears correctly as 'xterm'

Checking on terminal command line gives:

asimpson@hebe:~$ top
TERM environment variable not set.
asimpson@hebe:~$ echo $TERM
dumb
asimpson@hebe:~$ export TERM=xterm
asimpson@hebe:~$ echo $TERM
xterm
asimpson@hebe:~$ top
[Works as expected]

Changing the preferences setting to 'xterm-color' has no effect (The setting does stay in the preferences as set though).

Just adding that Gnome Terminal works as expected. The problem is limited to xfce4-terminal.
