i highly doubt anyone will consider "sudo gnome-terminal" or "pkexec
gnome-terminal" not working a bug ... you really do not want to run the
whole app as root here but instead have a root shell available inside
it. so the right way to use it would be:

gnome-terminal -e "sudo -s"

which will give you a root shell just fine but only elevate privileges
inside the spawned terminal ...
