#42 closed bug (fixed)

Saved Terminal settings don't include Window Size.

When I use the Haiku Terminal (compiled from SVN as of 2005.07.31 for target R5) under BeOS 5.0.3 Pro, double clicking on a saved Terminal settings file doesn't start up the new Terminal with the window size that it had when it was saved, unlike the R5 Terminal. Also there isn't an icon on the saved preferences file like the R5 one has. Minor stuff, but I happen to miss the old functionality, though I do like the new scroll wheel and UTF-8 features.

Added a "Save as default" menu item in revision 16495. Still lot of work to clean this app...

Yup - definitely unfinished in the GUI and other places. Gone back to R5 Terminal since it doesn't have some off by one screen size problems. Miss the scroll wheel though.

The environment variables COLUMNS and LINES are not updated when the terminal window is resized by dragging the lower right corner of the window using the mouse. If the command "echo $COLUMNS $LINES" is used, it shows the same size as before the window was resized.

In addition, the function ioctl() does not get the new window size either. The code for this call is:

struct winsize ws; ioctl(1, TIOCGWINSZ, &ws);

Setting it's window size back to one of the defaults (80x24 etc.) would not reset it's width which appeared way of screen. I had to delete it's settings file to get it back.
