Not for me. gnome-terminal runs fine (a quite slow but fine) in 2.2,
much better in 2.4 (especially around the time since ULE scheduler
is in kernel and KSE is default thread library, but that doesn't need
to be the reason), but it breaks down the starting speed and opening
new tabs and switching between them since 2.6.

So something must happened since there :-(

Could it be that some package dependencies from x11/gnome2 to
x11/gnome2-lite (that I've deinstalled when not required for
gnome2-lite) can cause this sloppy reaction?
