Description of problem:
When running zsh, my prompt is set to '%B[hostname]%b '.  This normally causes
the prompt to be in bold text.  With gnome-terminal, it does not do so.  There
is no difference whether the setting box is checked or unchecked.  In xterm, the
prompt is displayed in bold text.

This is fixed in newer vte. (not yet in rawhide I don't think)

Closing, fixed in Raw Hide (vte-0.9.2-1 and later).
