I tested the performance improvements by following these steps before
and after installing this new revision:
1. Logout and Log back into GNOME
2. Open gnome-terminal
3. Size the terminal to 80x24
4. Execute each of these tests 2 times before taking the value of the
3rd run as being conclusive:
Test Before After
time /usr/bin/seq -f "testtesttest %g" 100000 48.823s 8.697s
time /bin/cat /usr/share/dict/words 4.984s 1.174s
time /bin/cat /usr/share/mime-info/gnome-vfs.keys 8.234s 1.418s
NOTE: I'm only using the real (wall clock) time in the above benchmark

I haven't emailed the vte maintainer (Arnaud Patard). I saw that the
GNOME maintainers also co-maintained the package and thought it would be
OK to go ahead and update the package. Matthijs Mohlmann's finding of
the performance boost patch spurred me to go through GNOME's bugzilla
and help keep Debian's vte in shape (as best possible).
I apologize to Arnaud Patard for not contacting him before making this
