Hmm... I can also reproduce using Terminal 0.2.5svn on an up-to-date
debian unstable. It pegs the CPU usage krell in gkrellm upon any action
in/with Terminal including scrolling, clicking on any menu on the menu
bar or right clicking inside the Terminal window. Using gnome-terminal
version 2.10.0 does not behave the same way, no pegging the CPU.
