No, it’s simple. Launch up an xfce4-terminal window and just resize it. It
should be very slow compared to before.

Actually the one who’s taking all CPU cycles while resizing is X itself.
Xfce4-terminal itself takes almost no CPU cycles at all.

This makes me believe that this is related to X.org 7.3. Too bad I can’t
downgrade to verify this.
