I am 99% sure this is an X problem.
(Written before experimenting):
I'm currently experiencing this problem on one of my machines, and am fairly certain it's an xorg-related problem. I have the same versions of xfce4-terminal, libvte9, and libvte-common on both machines. One machine is running xserver-xorg version 1:7.0.22 (which doesn't demonstrate the problem), and the other is using version 1:7.3+2 (and does show the problem).
I just upgraded the unaffected box to 1:7.3+2 and slow xfce4-terminal drawing started happening on it as well. To be clear, the packages and versions changed during the upgraded follow:
[UPGRADE] gcc-4.2-base 4.2-20070609-1 -> 4.2.1-6
[UPGRADE] libgcc1 1:4.2-20070609-1 -> 1:4.2.1-6
[UPGRADE] libsensors3 1:2.10.1-2 -> 1:2.10.4-3
[UPGRADE] libstdc++6 4.2-20070609-1 -> 4.2.1-6
[UPGRADE] libxfont1 1:1.0.0-4 -> 1:1.3.1-1
[UPGRADE] lm-sensors 2.5.4-5 -> 1:2.10.4-3
[UPGRADE] xserver-xorg 1:7.0.22 -> 1:7.3+2
[UPGRADE] xserver-xorg-core 1:1.0.2-8 -> 2:1.4-3
[UPGRADE] xserver-xorg-input-kbd 1:126.96.36.199-2 -> 1:1.2.2-3
[UPGRADE] xserver-xorg-input-mouse 1:1.0.4-3 -> 1:1.2.2-6
[UPGRADE] xserver-xorg-video-nv 1:188.8.131.52-2 -> 1:2.1.5-1
[UPGRADE] xserver-xorg-video-tdfx 1:184.108.40.206-3 -> 1:1.3.0-6
Furthermore, gqview seems to be affected by the same problem (that is, redraws of its image-showing space seem to occur much more slowly than before the upgrade).
