    Hello all,

    I'm having a bit of a problem with terminal.
    When I open the app or open a new window all that is displayed is a bit of the top menu bar - just enough to diplay the red close button. I can't see any of the other buttons and nor can I resize it to actually see th text in the terminal window.
    This behaviour seems to be resticted to just one account - I logged in to another account to check.
    I've tried repairing permissions and removed com.apple.Terminal.plist from the library/preferences folder I my home directory.
    Are there any other prefs that couldbe removed to fix this?

    Mac OSX 10.4.11 iBook G4

    Hello plinden,

    The link you gave me described exactly what my problem was - and fixed it.
    Thank you very much.
