It's a bug probably. I'm unsure about 'terminix' and 'termit', but all
those 'gnome-terminal' and friends are based on libvte so they all
should behave the same way in this regard.

So please consider filling a bug against libvte.

BTW your testcase fails in st (stterm in Debian) too, which is not based
on libvte.
