Re: gnome-terminal awfully slow. :-(

I did the same test here :

cd /usr/share
time ls -lR

gnome-terminal 2.2.1 : real 0m13.687s
user    0m1.340s
sys     0m0.420s

xterm :
real    0m7.399s
user    0m1.390s
sys     0m0.390s

-> Only 1.8 times slower, much less than you reported !
And I think it's a very little performance penalty, considering that
text is now fully antialiased !
If you want to make the comparison more fair, there are a few xterm options you can set. Try running it like:
   xterm -u8 -fa fontname -fs pointsize

This will run xterm in utf-8 mode and use Xft to draw text. Using the same font name and point size you use in gnome-terminal to get rid of another variable.
