Roxterm has been almost discontinued, and it's suffering a bug that makes the terminal window open in a wrong size. There's a patch almost 1 year old now, approved by Tony Houghton (original author of Roxterm)
Somebody talks about a problem when moving tabs outside window, but I think it would be better to include this patch in Community's roxterm, even if it's still not included in mainline code. Here is a PKGBUILD I prepared for testing.

Additional info:
Roxterm 3.3.2
This task depends upon

I don't see where it says there that the author approved the patch. All the author said was "Thanks for making the effort. I hope you can get it working properly." -- in reference to a patch sent in by email, which is not what the patch you referenced is, and the one you reference never got a response.

Ironically, this package is also orphaned here, since the previous Arch package maintainer has retired.

You're right. I confused user Harp with Realh...
Nobody committed anything to the github repo Realh opened on purpose, then I suspect nobody is working on it anymore (don't you say???).
I think the project is abandoned, we can unplug power supply and put it on sleep, or give it a little bit more life with this patch. Until next gtk upgrade...
