Raising severity to RC bug status for now. It would be good if either  
of you (Alex, Ben) could provide more info on how you use  
mate-terminal (locale, with MATE desktop, in some other X11 context,  
what theme, etc.).

As I personally can not reproduce this bug, I am unsure how to narrow  
down its cause. Is there a way for me to reproduce this issue on a  
freshly installed system? Any recipe that you can give?
