disable gnome-terminal close window warning dialog in gconf

gnome-terminal warns me if I try to close it while it is running something or logged in as root. A useful measure but also a bit annoying depending on your terminal habits. To disable the warning:

  1. Alt+F2 for the run dialog. Type 'gconf-editor' and hit enter.
  2. Navigate to apps > gnome-terminal > global.
  3. Uncheck 'confirm-window-close'.
  4. Close gconf-editor.
