   "gnome-terminal" is NOT an xterm. It is an extremely dumbed-down
terminal emulator written and maintained by developers who can't imagine
and never even considered that you might want to use it to connect to a
remote system, let alone a non-Linux remote system.

   "That's what VNC is for." <-- verbatim quote from a "developer" on
the gnome-terminal maintainers' list.
