terminal emulators

gnome-terminal is a piece of shit. (currently using 2.2.1, but every prior version has also been a piece of shit too.)

unfortunately, it's one of the best pieces of shit out there. it supports profiles, tabs, Xft/fontconfig, utf-8.... just wish it wouldn't randomly do stupid stuff all the time.

i've tried konsole (KDE) ... it's finicky too, especially dealing with fonts. and i couldn't figure out its profiles.

newer xterms can do fonts well with freetype, but the width of characters is all messed up... i'm probably missing a billion obscure command line options.

i guess i'll stick with gnome-terminal for now? :-/
