You should certainly profile with the default gtk theme, not an
expensive pixmap theme. Otherwise you're profiling the theme, not the
terminal. And definitely don't profile with a transparent terminal or
something like that.

Of course, the terminal wasn't transparent. But moving to the default GTK theme improved things by 50-100%, so now we can approach 1/3 the speed of rxvt-unicode in certain cases. ;)

Still, _why_ are we redrawing the scrollbar? It gets to its minimum size and sits there, unless I scroll it.

The problem here is that your profiler doesn't seem to show call graphs;
if it did you could quickly tell if those pixbuf calls were from the
theme drawing or what.

Yes, sorry about that. I have a pretty weird setup. Surely someone else has profiled vte before? Nevertheless, looks like those pixbuf calls were from theme drawing. All gone now - please look at the updated profiles attached to 137864
