A few days ago I discovered a silly little bug in Terminal on OS X 10.5. It’s pretty easy to trigger:
- Open Terminal.
- Press Command-T to open a new tab.
- Press Command-W to close the new tab.
- Lather, rinse, repeat, and watch your window get smaller and smaller.
Each time you open a new tab Terminal steals a line for screen real-estate for the tab bar, and each time you close the tab the tab bar disappears and shortens the window by a line. It would be much better if it returned the line to the terminal session or did just about anything other than what it does. Fortunately, iTerm has no such issue.
