Bug#973918: nautilus-extension-gnome-terminal fails to track environment

Package: nautilus-extension-gnome-terminal
Version: 3.38.1-1
Severity: important

Steps to reproduce:

    In Nautilus, right click and select "Open in Terminal"

    Open a new tab (+ icon or ctrl-shift-t)

I get the error:

    mkdir: cannot create directory '/.keychain': Permission denied
    * Error: can't create /.keychain

Which seems to be due to $HOME not being set, in fact most of my 
environment variables aren't set - 12 vs 49 for a regular terminal.

Reverting gnome-terminal, gnome-terminal-data and 
nautilus-extension-gnome-terminal to 3.38.0-1 fixes the issue (after 
you've closed all terminal windows).

I'm on Sid amd64.
