[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#502925: xfce4-terminal: new fonts are not available until all terminals closed

Package: xfce4-terminal
Version: 0.2.8-5
Severity: normal

if new fonts are installed, xfce4-terminal will not recognize them until
all of its processes are stopped.  this can be problematic because
user's will expect the new options to be available immediately. also, if 
the user is running a long process in one of their xfce4-terminals, they
will have to wait until that is complete before they can make a change
(some of the things that i run take days...).

i suggest that the font list should instead be when the user opens the
preferences dialog rather than at application start up.
