  gnome-terminal starts up at 79×23 instead of 80×24

Bug description:
  Starting gnome-terminal results in a 79×23 window instead of the
  standard 80×24, at least in Ubuntu Gnome with the default Adwaita
  theme on a high-DPI laptop. This makes it irritating to use some
  applications designed for an 80-column terminal.

  According to an upstream bug report
  (https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=750559), the problem is
  caused by the Ubuntu patch debian/patches/0001-Add-the-style-context-
  provider-with-FALLBACK-priorit.patch, which was reverted upstream
  (https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=740123#c6) and in Debian
  (https://bugs.debian.org/787104) for this reason. A new version of
  this patch (https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=740123#c9)
  fixes the problem for me.
