Have you installed xscreensaver-gnome?

Because Gnome Terminal uses alt for tab shortcuts by default. Change the
keybindings if you don't like that.

Exit the app, delete the gconf key with gconf-editor and start it again

There might be a gconf key for this.

Maybe RH uses something like magicdev?

Indeed; hence my suspicion is that it's technically not possible for it
to tell on its own. metacity-setup isn't a part of GNOME anyway, nor is
it needed with GNOME 2.2.

I guess startup notification only works with apps that support it, e.g.
GNOME2 apps.

Because you wouldn't gain any actual terminal space if there wasn't?
