Question 1 of 3 : Ubuntu - size of Terminal/Console

I am just finalising the changeover of my wife's computer from another 
distro to Lucid (almost there - the bloody sound doesn't work! - where 
have I read this before? :-( ).

Question 1: I always like to see the Terminal/Console window open in 
maximised mode.

What do I need to do to make this window STAY maximised whenever I open it?

I have used "gnome-terminal --maximize" till I am blue in the face but 
the setting will NOT stick. (BTW, the same thing is happening in 
Maverick Alpha2.)

On my computer I have no such problem but with the new installation of 
Lucid (and in Alpha2 Maverick) I am unable to get it to "stick".

What I forgotten to do, please?
