Sometimes when I'm working in Terminal, it auto-maximizes the window. It is frustrating because I'm referring to another window that gets obscured when the auto-maximize occurs. What can I do to disable this functionality?

I know of no way to do this in, but iTerm offers this feature under iTerm -> Preferences... -> Profiles -> Window -> Disable session-initiated window resizing. It has a great deal of other capabilities over, as well.
