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. Konsole should also have the same properties
as xterm with regard to these features.
