Actually, Jerome made the original post in which he said that he tried
multi-gnome-terminal on amd64 and that it was filled with garbage
characters.  I recommended gnome-terminal.  Marc's retort [0] was only
one line: "Have you ever *used* gnome-terminal?  'Nuff said."

Naturally, since he provided *zero* substantiation for his position (if
you could even call it that), I asked if he had in fact used it.  Now, I
don't consider that bouncing email around.  He did not provide a single
point why gnome-terminal was unsuitable, so I'd like to see at least

BTW, I never claimed that gnome-terminal was a even a passable clone of
xterm.  Jerome wanted a possible substitude for multi-gnome-terminal.  I
figured the killer feature for him was multiple terminals, thus I
recommended gnome-terminal.

Care to provide a screenshot?  I test in Opera on Mac OS X and Linux
and it looks no different than in Firefox.
