My hunch is you're using transparent gnome-terminal.

Transparency with gnome-terminal has been completely unusable as of
gnome 2.0, IMO.  The memory usage and very slow performance precludes
using this particular option.  

I recommend you use a solid color as your gnome-terminal background, or
use Eterm, which handles transparency fairly nicely.  I personally have
chosen the former, and I find gnome-terminal's performance acceptable.
