Shows an example of the terminal-gap-bug.
If I snap a terminal with hidden menubar to a display-corner then the terminal-window isn't resized properly and leaves a gap to the bottom (look at the attached picture).
1. Open terminal
2. Hide menubar
3. Snap terminal to the left/right bottom corner
4. Observe a gap between the terminal and the bottom of the display
Generally the window-size of the terminal is adjusted not good, leaving gaps sometimes to the right and to the bottom. This is rather inconvenient for people who work a lot with the terminal. This is ugly and wastes valuable display-space. For me this is a reason to change the DE in the long-run because I work a lot with terminals.

This is because xfce4-terminal uses size increments, so its size must be a multiple of the character cells.
Try konsole, and see what I mean.

Sure, feel free to use whatever desktop you want :)
or use tilix...
This means it can't and won't be fixed because this is just the way xfce4-terminal is programmed?
I somehow thought its an xfwm issue because I have the same problem with gnome-terminal and I think it worked in Linux Mint Cinnamon. But thanks for the tip. Konsole works indeed. No reason to switch the DE :)
I just tested it again in cinnamon and it works. Therefore I think that it might be rather a window-manager issue because the mint-guys somehow manage to display the terminal-window (xfce4, gnome, xterm, urxvt) properly. So is there anything you can do about it?
This is not an issue, this is xfwm4 being strict about what the application specifies...
The application specifies a base size and size increments, xfwm4 obeys and enforce those.
Ok then I close it.
