I think there is more one bug, which I seen it some month ago.
With vte 0.36 (GNOME 3.12 cycle) the terminal in the bottom
don't work, and cause to crash. since it happen, I work with
'geany -t' (disable terminal).

I think each Arch's user will be affected from this bug, since
GNOME 3.12 (with vte 0.36 and glib 2.40) it already in the testing
repo, and in a week/two-weeks it will be available in the extra 
(stable) repo.
