Roxterm does all of that.  I thought gnome-terminal did all of that too, 
but I uninstalled it, so I can't check.

As I said elsewhere, KDE is too flashy and actually too configurable for 
me (I'd spend all my time tweaking stuff).  Gnome is perhaps bland, but 
I like that because it stays out of my way.

I love screen, it rules.  But I mostly use it for reconnecting or 
sharing terminals, not so much for multiplexing.  <Goes and adds that to 
my next "Cool Ubuntu Apps" preso.>
