    gnome-terminal should be an exact copy of the xterm codes without the
    tek graphics extensions. Roughly speaking thats vt220. If you know of
    any it gets wrong please file a bug report.

    It should also be preserving tabs (WORKKSFORME 8)). People with
    replicable cases where it doesn't should stick them in gnome bugzilla.
    https://bugzilla.gnome.org. Konsole should also have the same properties
    as xterm with regard to these features.
