Well that's good to hear. :)  The -e switch works with gnome-terminal
too, incidentally.

True, being correct every single time doesn't hurt either. :)

It does, and it definitely could stand some performance improvements.  I
don't think it's _vastly_ slower than xterm (once it's started), but it
does often get in the way.

I think it was Warren who mentioned that he has to minimize
gnome-terminal when he's doing a noisy compile otherwise it
significantly slows down.  That's certainly true for me too (although I
just toggle to another tab), but I'm not sure if the real problem is
with gnome-terminal, pango, or the underlying font system -- or perhaps
at layers even lower than that, like really bad or non-existent Render
support in the video driver.
