Ubuntu – Option “-e” is deprecated and might be removed in a later version of gnome-terminal

17.10gnome-terminal

After upgrading from Ubuntu 17.04 to 17.10, I get a warning about that option -e is deprecated when starting gnome-terminal from the command line. For example, assume I want to open a gnome-terminal with two tabs, and running separate commands in each tab:

$ gnome-terminal --tab --active -e 'bash -c "echo Hello; exec bash"' --tab -e 'bash -c "echo Hello2; exec bash"'
Option “-e” is deprecated and might be removed in a later version of gnome-terminal.
Use “-- ” to terminate the options and put the command line to execute after it.

But how can I run separate commands for each tab if I am supposed to use -- to terminate the options? For example, the following does not work:

$ gnome-terminal --tab --active -- bash -c "echo Hello; exec bash" --tab -- bash -c "echo Hello2; exec bash"

It just opens a single tab.
