Subject: gnome-terminal: new window should be same size as active window
Date: Tue, 11 Nov 2008 11:03:23 -0800
Package: gnome-terminal
Version: 2.22.3-3
Severity: wishlist

It would be cool if, when I hit ctl-N, the new window would be
the same size as the window that was active when I used the
command (or right clicked and chose "Open Terminal").

I use a desktop alias with the command changed to use the
flag --geometry to set the dimensions and location.  Though
I do not want the new window to be exactly on top of the
active window, but it would be great if it were the same
size instead of 80x40. 

Or if I could put a default size in the profile, that would
work too.

Thanks!  --mark--
