Bug#533162: gnome-terminal: gnome terminal complains when exiting with a running ssh session

Package: gnome-terminal
Version: 2.26.2-1
Severity: important

When closing a gnome-terminal through the window manage close button
while running a ssh session it requires a highly annoying confirmation
to really close it.  This makes gnome-terminal unuseable for managing
lots of temporary remote ssh sessions.  Before the last update from the
testing repositories this behaviour was not present.
