My fault, I snipped off too many lines. ;-) 

In his post Ralf wrote:"OT: Btw. I also recommend to replace xfce4-
terminal with roxterm. Both usually are compatible when you start them 
with special options from command line, but roxterm is better to 
configure, e.g. dis/enabling the bell could be done by the GUI, no need 
to use a hidden file, as it has to be done for xfce4-terminal."

And my question was about that specific to xfce4-terminal hidden file? I 
meant to say that of all hidden (doted :-) ) files in my home directory 
neither is specific to xfce4-terminal configurations.
