You can set the terminal to open at any size with by using '-geometry
100x100' after the command which launches the terminal. Replace '100'
with the amount of horizontal and vertical window size you want to use.
So, if you're running at 800x600, use those as the size arguments. There
may be an easier way, but this will work.
