Package: xfce4-terminal
Version: 0.4.8-1+b1
Severity: normal

In Preferences / Advanced, there is a setting for "$TERM setting". But
it seems not to work at all; whatever I set it to, the TERM variable
is always "xterm", even in new tabs.

I tried setting it to "xterm-256color" and to set it to "FOO".
