[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#341047: xfce4-terminal causes cpu-peaks

Package: xfce4-terminal
Version: 0.2.4-3+b1
Severity: normal


this came up just recently (not sure wether today or yesterday) I think.
xfce4-terminal produces cpu-peaks here about every 3-5 seconds. This is
really annoying because this peak also incorporates a "hang" for the
whole computer, i.e. mouse stops, keyboard input is not shown and so on.

This happens only within a KDE session, I think (at least I didn't
notice it in the last XFCE4 Session) and also only happens when the
terminal has the focus.

Furthermor it's related to the size of the Terminal, i.e. a really small
terminal (1 text line high) doesn't show a peak in gkrellm, but a larger
one shows a significant peak.

I couldn't identify the process causing so much cpu-usage using top, so
if you need more information please give me a hint on how to obtain
