  Pressing F1 in gnome-terminal forces you to log out of a gnome classic

Status in gnome-terminal package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:

  Steps to reproduce:
  1) Log in, to a "gnome classic" session.
  2) Start a gnome-terminal window (for example, right-click on desktop and choose "Open terminal...").
  3) Press F1.

  At this point, an empty help window appears, but it can't be closed or
  killed - it respawns continually on a new process id. Also, it grabs
  the keyboard focus, so other open applications become unusable. The
  only way to continue working is to log out of the session.

  Expected behavior:
  At least, not hanging the session. My typical use case is that I'm trying to hit some other key (for example, the <esc> key while using "vi" in the terminal window), and hit F1 by accident, rendering the session unusable.
