gnome 2.18, gnome-terminal, transparent background clubbed when switching workspaces...

I was wondering whether anyone else is noticing this behaviour (it did
not happen under 2.16).

I have the background in gnome-terminal set to transparent. When I
switch workspaces to one that has an open terminal from one that has,
say, a white background (galeon, evolution), the terminal background
inherits the white background... it often occurs but not always -
sometimes simply moving the window resets the background.

Any/all suggestions welcome.
