But here's the problem 

man x-terminal-emulator brings up the man page for gnome-terminal.

the gnome-terminal man page says that --geometry=GEOMETRY is a valid option.

However, --geometry=GEOMETRY is NOT a valid option for x-terminal-emulator.

So there's a bug - maybe the bug is that it pulls up the wrong man page.
