Hmmm, works fine for me. (gnome-core- and enlightenment
wm).  One note regarding the default location/size, I've not followed
this thread very carefully, so if someone has suggested this already,
I'll go stand in the corner with Chris.  Anyway, it's a hack, but you
could put a shell script in your path ahead of the actual gnome-terminal
that is called gnone-terminal which consists of:

/usr/bin/gnome-terminal --geometry 80x44+0+0

You could also make it a bit smarter by having it place each successive
window in a different spot.
