Strange. I don't know exactly what could cause this. It triggers my "indication of a wider problem" sensor, so I would probably start by checking general stuff, like the disk being full.

If there's nothing obvious like that, I would guess it's something to do with the gconf settings database. Try closing all gnome-terminal instances, and then try re-naming the directory ~/.gconf/apps/gnome-terminal to something else, e.g. ~/.gconf/apps/gnome-terminal.backup.

Then start a new gnome-terminal and see if it helps.

I agree, it can be a problem with gconf. Try to launch from a terminal the following command:
Code:
env GCONF_DEBUG_TRACE_CLIENT=1 gnome-terminal
and post the output here. It will give a trace of all the calls and hopefully some detail about what's going wrong.

What about file or directory permissions?
