It is slow on Linux too, there are plenty of Linux users that are
complaining about it too. ;-) Althought, it was a lot better than what it
was in GNOME 2.0 - 2.2.
Anyway, perhaps one of you can try to edit
x11-toolkits/vte/files/patch-src_vte.c from 15 to 5 or 2 to see if it
helps a little. If not, then remove all the '@@ -101,7 +101,7 @@' entry
and keep the '@@ -11318,7 +11318,6 @@' entry. This '@@ -101,7 +101,7 @@'
entry was added in GNOME 2.6 to improvement on the speed, but it wasn't on
me at the first place until I requested for change 50 to 15.
If none of that help, then bug to the VTE/GNOME developers harder.
