I use Terminator. It allows for grid-based subdividing of your
terminal window, which I like so I can see stuff side-by-side or
top-bottom. Then, if I want I can launch screen sessions from each
sub-window. So I usually have one sub-window permanently living in
gdb, one permanently living in my source directory, and a couple
others that scramble around.
Terminator is quite configurable, and has lots of things to tweak and
tinker with, which was another plus for me, too.
