What you need to use is the CLASS returned by the xprop command. If you install the x11-utils package, you'll get this command (not sure if that package is installed by default).

This is the result:
And so you need to add "Gnome-terminal" (no quotes) to Maximus' exclude list using the techniques described earlier in this thread.
WM_CLASS(STRING) = "gnome-terminal", "Gnome-terminal"
Here is a script which you can bind to a hotkey to do all this automatically: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1483946. It works really well, and makes using Maximus for all windows (e.g., the "no_maximize" option unset) actually tolerable.
