Power Problem - gnome terminal shell scripting

I've a python script named I'm running the program in three separate terminals. If one of the executing program stops . I want to leave the terminal as it is so that i can see the error. i wrote a the below script and used cron to run it every one hour to check if the three programs are running. if not open a new terminal and run the program.
My problem here is that In the script below the terminal window where the new runs and if an error occurs the newly open terminal window closes and i'm not able to see the error. I want the newly created terminal window to stay as it is so that i can come back and see the error.

count=`ps -ef | grep | grep -v grep | wc -l`
echo $pid
if test $count -lt 3
gnome-terminal -e "./"
echo "hi"

Please help!!!!

gnome-terminal - terminal emulator for GNOME SYNOPSIS
gnome-terminal [--window-with-profile=profilename] [--tab-with-profile=profilename] [--command command] [--execute command] [--role=role] [--show-menubar | --hide-menubar] [--use-factory | --disable-factory] [--title=title] [--working-directory=dirname] [gnome-std-options] DESCRIPTION
gnome-terminal is the GNOME terminal emulation program. It provides access to the UNIX shell on the GNOME environment. gnome-terminal sup- ports multiple profiles to allow easy switching between preferences, and supports tabbing so that multiple terminals can be managed from a single window. By default, all GNOME terminals share a single process, reducing memory usage. This can be disabled by starting gnome-ter- minal with the --disable-factory option. OPTIONS
The following options are supported: --command commanExecutes the command command instead of the shell. This saves some memory if you just plan to run a dedicated application on that window. You can also use -e to specify this option. --execute commanThis option is provided for compatibility reasons. It is the same as the --command option. You can also use -x to specify this option. --disable-factorDo not register with the activation name server, and do not reuse an already running GNOME terminal process. --hide-menubar Hide the menubar. This applies only to one window. When used with multiple --window-with-profile options, it applies to the --window-with-profile option immediately to the left. Can be specified multiple times, once for each --window-with-profile option. --role=role The GNOME session manager follows the ICCCM convention of using the window title and the window role to identify specific windows. The session manager uses this information to put windows back in the same place when the user restarts their ses- sion. If all windows have a unique title, there is no need to set the role. However, as it is common for multiple GNOME terminals to have the same title, the user can also specify the role on the command line with the --role option. This helps the session manager to properly identify and restart each GNOME terminal (in the same location, and so on). When used with multiple --window-with-profile options, it applies to the --window-with-profile option immediately to the left. Can be specified multiple times, once for each --window-with-profile option. --show-menubar Show the menubar. This applies only to one window. When used with multiple --window-with-profile options, it applies to the --window-with-profile option immediately to the left. Can be specified multiple times, once for each --window-with-profile option. --tab-with-profiCreatesilanatab that uses the specified profile. This argument may be specified multiple times to create multiple tabs in a terminal. If this is used with multiple --window-with-profile options, the tab is created for the window that corresponds to the --window-with-profile option immediately to the left. --title=title Set the title for the GNOME terminal to be title. --use-factory Register with the activation name server, and reuse an already running GNOME terminal process. --window-with-prCreatesroaiGNOMEeterminal and a tab that uses the specified profile. This may be used with the --tab-with-profile option to create additional tabs. Multiple --window-with-profile options can be specified to create multiple GNOME terminal windows. All options specified after an --window-with-profile option apply to that --window-with-profile option only. --working-directSet=thenworking directory for the GNOME terminal to be dirname. gnome-std-optionStandard options available for use with most GNOME applications. See gnome-std-options(5) for more information. EXTENDED DESCRIPTION
gnome-terminal is designed to emulate the xterm program provided by the X Consortium. The xterm(1) program in turn is an almost-complete emulation of the DEC VT102 terminal. gnome-terminal supports the same extensions to the VT102 as those provided by the xterm program, through special escape sequences. The xterm program is an evolving program. Recent changes to xterm have been been incorporated into gnome- terminal. This includes emulation of the newer DEC VT220 escape sequences. EXAMPLES
Example 1: Running the `minicom' terminal emulator on the window example% gnome-terminal --command minicom Example 2: Monitoring the system example% gnome-terminal --command top Example 3: Starting two windows with different profiles example% gnome-terminal --window-with-profile=FirstProfile --tab-with-profile=SecondProfile --window-with-profile=SecondProfile In this example, the first window will have two tabs (FirstProfile and SecondProfile) and the second window will have one tab (SecondPro- file). ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
See environ(5) for descriptions of the following environment variables, set by gnome-terminal: TERM This variable is set to xterm by default. Some implementations of curses, and applications based on curses, may prefer the value to be xterm-color, color-xterm, or xterm-debian to support color. Users might need to change this setting to one of these values to enable color for such applications. COLORTERM This variable is set to xterm. Various applications (especially the Slang-based applications) use this setting to determine whether the terminal supports color. WINDOWID This variable contains the X11 Window identifier. This is sometimes used by applications to modify the contents of this window or provide special effects. EXIT STATUS
The following exit values are returned: 0 Application exited successfully >0 Application exited with failure FILES
The following files are used by this application: /usr/bin/gnome-terminal Executable for GNOME terminal emulator ATTRIBUTES
