Unable to change gnome-terminal COLUMNS value


Ubuntu 10 x64

I originally set the COLUMNS value to 105 from 80 in gconf-editor (apps/gnome-terminal/profile/default/default_size_rows) a long time ago.
After the recent update (jeez this is sound like windows already...), no matter how I set $COLUMNS, I am stuck with a width of 80 whenever I run gnome-terminal.

I have set $COLUMNS to 105
Code:
user@asus64:~$ COLUMNS=105
user@asus64:~$ echo $COLUMNS
105
But no go.

Very annoying, please help

Hi,

A little search comes up with this: Bug 581097 [gnome-terminal]. Doesn't look like there is a fix as of yet.

Hope this helps.
