When I run gnome-terminal from the command line and hit return, the shell prompt appears immediately when the gnome-terminal window is open, as if gnome-terminal & was executed. This is unlike xterm, which will not return to the shell prompt unless it is started in the background.

My question is how I can start gnome-terminal in the foreground the same way as xterm, such that it won't return to the shell prompt after entering return unless I explicitly run gnome-terminal &?
