any chances for some last minute vte changes, or atleast something to consider



We have all dealt with the good, the bad, and the ugly of
gnome-terminal/vte.  Don't get me wrong, it has been my terminal of
choice as long as I have run redhat/fedora.  The speed output has
always been an issue for me, but it wasn't until recently that the
tabbed redraw problem became apparent to me.  I always switch my
terminal to a black background with grey fonts, so it wasn't until I
started rolling my customized fedora core 2 desktop out to my
coworkers that the multi-tab black background bug was ever a factor.

The speed issue was addresed in the patch attached to this bugzilla,
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=132770 , which I
have found fantastic.  Without the mad skills of this excellent
programmer I addressed the lesser of  the two evils, the tabbed black
background bug.  My debugging led to a less elegant, but harmless and
effective solution with a patch attached to this bug,
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=100420 .

Between the two patches I now have a gnome-terminal that just works
how I want it, and how I assume everyone would like it to.  These have
been nagging bugs for quite some time.  I know getting changes into
vte at the gnome level has been slow, any chance of use addressing the
issues at a distribution level?
