Bug#236165: lots of output on/moving transparent gnome-terminal is slow

Package: gnome-terminal
Version: 2.4.2-6
Severity: normal

When gnome-terminal has a transparent background and there's an image in the
background (I run xplanet on the root window), then moving the window around is
very slow.  Letting my window manager slide the gnome-terminal window smoothly
(with fvwm's AnimatedMove command) from one side of the desktop to the other
takes several seconds, badly affecting overall system performance while doing
so.  The same behavior occurs when there's a program running inside of
gnome-terminal that generates lots of output very fast.

This behavior only occurs after running gnome-terminal for several minutes.
Setting the background to a solid color, and then back to transparent sometimes
solves the problem for several more minutes, but sometimes it doesn't.
Sometimes the problem goes away by itself, but sooner or later it comes back
