Setting gnome-terminal size

How can I get gnome-terminal to always start with size 90x30?  It's easy
enough to make this happen when it's started from an icon, etc. just
invoke it with something like "gnome-terminal --geometry=90x30".  But
when I create a second terminal using:
	Rt-click (anywhere in the terminal)->Open Terminal
the terminal created is always 80x24.  Kterm provides such an option,
but isn't fully compatible with the gnome desktop.  Is gnome-terminal
missing an option like this, or have I missed something?

Thanks - jon
