And the other way around, when starting a GNOME terminal in Xfce,
the GNOME terminal immdiately shrinks itself (you see it shrinking!)
horizontally to a width of 28 characters.  No idea why this happens,
I'm happy with the Xfce terminal, so I don't need it...  Maybe I
should file a bug or can anyone see if this is still the case in F16?
