Default gnome-terminal size incorrect in fc17

I modified the properties in the terminal launcher, such that it opens a 100x32
terminal.However, the actual size is somewhat less than that, such that I have
to use:

--geometry 101x32
to get the full 100 printing characters. This does not seem to be the case with
GNOME2 systems, and it happens in GNOME3, XFCE, and Cinnamon. I think it's a bug
in gnome-terminal. The old fc14/RHEL6 version gives me what I request. I tried
setting a custom default size in edit->preferences, which did not change the

Will push to bugzilla later today unless someone winds fault with my test.
