There seems to be a bug in Gnome 2.6, and changing the program
specification is impossible. I looked at what happens, and the override
desktop file is created in ~/.gnome2/vfolders/applications. It isn't
used to create the panel menu though.
A work-around is to create a new terminal entry in the Launch menu
(Launch|Applications|Utilities, right click any icon and select "entire
Menu", then "Add item to this menu". You'll get a launcher creation
screen. Enter a name, and in the command type "gnome-terminal
--geometry 100x35". Click on the Icon button to select an icon, press
"Close". You now have a terminal with the required default size.
