Is it possible to set a custom icon for gnome-terminal, maybe dependent on the profile. I often have many terminal windows open and it gets a bit tricky to distinguish between them.

I often have many terminal windows open and switch between them with alt-tab. Right now, they are all shown as the black "utilities-terminal" icon. I would like to customize the icons so I can easily switch between them - how?
I've tried creating custom .desktop entries and changing the Icon there. But, that only changes the icon to launch the terminal.
I am using gnome-terminal in LXDE. When I have several gnome-terminal windows open, after some time the cursor in the inactive window starts to blink as well, as if the inactive window was actually active.
This only happens with gnome-terminal. Other terminal emulators such as LXTerminal work fine.

Right click on the desktop gives me a "Open in terminal", which opens a GNOME Terminal. And I cannot find a xterm icon in the Application menu. However I can get a xterm by typing 'xterm' in a GNOME Terminal. Is there anyway that I can make xterm default? Thanks.
