The following are results of tests on both the old tarball version (0.9.5) and a new version (extracted from CVS on 6th December 2009), using libobjc versions 4.1 and 4.4:

Old source, libobjc version 4.1 -

Creating Terminal services requires the workaround
of bringing up the Preferences panel and then making
a 'dummy change'.

New source, libobjc version 4.1 -

After starting Terminal.app, services are automatically
added to ~/GNUstep/Library/Services/TerminalServices.plist
and appear in GWorkspace's Services menu. However,
there seemed to be something a little strange about
the behaviour of the Preferences panel: on clicking
a tab, it was highlighted but the previously selected
tab remained highlighted and the contents of the panel
did not change to reflect the newly selected tab.

Old source, libobjc version 4.4 -

Creating Terminal services still needs the workaround
of bringing up the Preferences panel and then making
a 'dummy change'.

New source, libobjc version 4.4 -

After starting Terminal.app, services are automatically
added to ~/GNUstep/Library/Services/TerminalServices.plist
and appear in GWorkspace's Services menu.

The original problem, of GNUstep applications not including Terminal services in their Services menu, appears to be the same problem referred to in:

http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/discuss-gnustep/2009-10/msg00037.html

which gives an effective work-around: go into Terminal.app's Info/Preferences... menu; click on the 'Terminal services' tab; then add or change any service. The Terminal services are then listed by GNUstep applications.

THis is not a bug in GWorkspace: The Set button is needed only for the Xterm setting. I regrouped the button into it.

The problem of being unable to use Terminal.app as a terminal serviecs application is due to its services not appearing.

* GNUstep applications do not seem to include Terminal in
their 'Services' menu.

* GWorkspace-0.8.7 does not allow selection of Terminal.app
in Preferences; after checking the 'Use Terminal services'
box, the 'Set' button is disabled.
