We'd still have to protect the terminal object.  I've checked in a fix
that uses inhibit_garbage_collection, but if you'd like to replace this
with a more elegant fix, go ahead.

Since it appears to fix the problem (as far as Sven can tell), I'll
close this bug.  I'll forward the patch to the Debian bts too.
