Description Stephen John Smoogen 2003-02-14 06:20:49 UTC
Description of problem:

Have noticed this with all displays (xterm, konsole, gnome-terminal) but most
have improved in speed greatly (possibly fixes in other related libraries).

ls seems to have improved in speed with the rawhide of 20030213, but
it still pegs the CPU at 100% for 6-7 seconds. The speed of xterm has
improved greatly. Here is my current test. Copy all of
rawhide/i386/RedHat/RPMS into a directory and then cd into it.

time ls -l in gnome-terminal/konsole/xterm 

xterm
real    0m0.753s
user    0m0.260s
sys     0m0.000s

konsole
real    0m2.050s
user    0m0.100s
sys     0m0.100s

gnome-terminal
real    0m6.082s
user    0m0.040s
sys     0m0.040s

unaliasing ls did not change things. There are also general slow 
displays in most of the 'layout' when working in gnome-terminal.
How can I debug this furhter?
