  Vinagre SSH session eats too much X resources

Status in vinagre package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: vinagre

  OS : Ubuntu Karmic (patches are up-to-date)

  There is a huge performance related bug in Vinagre for SSH session

  After such a session has been opened, general drawing speed is very
  slow in the embedded terminal : a simple thing such as a 'top' lags
  noticeably at each screen refresh. Worse, launching a command which
  outputs continuously on the standard output completely blocks the X
  server, which becomes unresponsive (ie. whole desktop is frozen) until
  vinagre is killed. It probably means that vinagre is flooding the X
  server with drawing commands ....

  Connecting to the same remote servers and launching the same commands
  from a "standard" gnome terminal works perfectly, and since vinagre
  uses (I think) the same VTE widget, there must be something fishy
  going on in vinagre itself.

  There is a very interesting workaround for this bug : if the vinagre
  window is unmaximised and then maximised again, the slow down
  completely disappears ! The console behaves perfectly like a standard
  gnome terminal after that.

  In case it would be related to a graphic driver problem, it's an Intel
  Q35 chipset (using the free intel driver shipped with karmic).
