Bug#483832: gnome-terminal window takes very long time to draw

Package: gnome-terminal
Followup-For: Bug #483832

Dear Maintainer,

In the wheezy version, using gnome-shell, the terminal takes about 5
seconds to a) add a tab and b) display a New Window, and is very laggy
when resizing--taking a second or so to redraw, more with larger windows.

I have a trasparent background, which on its own performs very well
(by which I mean, there is no lag when moving the window).  If I change
the background to solid in the gnome-terminal preferences, it makes the
new window and new tab quick, but the resizing is the same regardless of
the background setting.

Hope this helps...
