gnome-terminal worked this morning, and I haven't installed any software or changed any OS configurations. Now every time I try to open a terminal window, I get an error dialog: The application gnome-terminal has crashed. However you don't have installed bug-buddy, the GNOME crash report tool..."
I've tried installing bug-buddy unsuccessfully, but that's beside the point.
I restarted and shut-down/started-up without luck. I've uninstalled and reinstalled gnome-terminal, and this didn't help either.
