I don't know if it'll fix the issue, but yes, you can reinstall it.
Open the terminal and type in
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install --reinstall gnome-terminal


You may instead wish to purge it then install, since whatever's causing the issue will likely persist otherwise.
Home PC: Xubuntu 14.04 x64, Nvidia GTX650, i7 3770K, 16GB RAM, Asus Xonar DX
Work PC: Mint 13 x64 XFCE, Nvidia GT620, i5 3470, 8GB RAM
Laptop: System76 Kudu Pro, Xubuntu 14.04 x64

Yeah - the way to do that would be to simply type:
Code: Select all
sudo apt remove --purge gnome-terminal

and then do what passerby suggested.
