gnome-terminal doesn't accept the -T option, and this brokes some calls from
other applications. gnome-terminal is the only terminal emulator i've
installed and use, so, no one is forced to use xterm. no program depends on
xterm, and I solved the problem with netscape or other packages that call
xterm explictly by creating a symlink xterm -> gnome-terminal. But the lack
of -T option remains, though don't know what it means.
