I need gnome-terminal to open full-screen by default.

I overloaded it via /usr/local/bin/gnome-terminal:

exec /usr/bin/gnome-terminal --full-screen "$@"

But this only works for xdg-mime (.desktop files with Terminal=true) and opening gnome-terminal from gnome-menu.

It does not work when I start new terminal by right-clicking in existing terminal and selecting "Open Terminal" option in the drop-down menu.

I tried to search in gnome-terminal source, but did not find where this menu option is handled.

How to start gnome-terminal full-screen in all cases?
