Bug#519221: libpixman-1-0: libpixman in testing (0.14.0) causes terminal to be unusably slow (with regression test)
I am tracking testing. Recently after the release of lenny I noticed
that my terminal emulator
(konsole) became almost unusably slow. The lines refresh about twice
as fast as I can read them
-- that is, when I do 'ls', I can almost follow along as the output appears!
After some testing I have narrowed it to libpixman-1-0. I checked out
the git and did a bisect,
and determined the problem is the following commit:
92ef26dfed3337831dd5156bfe0d20b132a26a29 is first bad commit

This happened a bit after the version 0.11.1 tag (lenny has 0.10.0 and
squeeze has 0.14.0).
I hope this can be fixed, as it makes my terminal incredibly frustrating to use.
