Updated vte packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
Virtual Terminal Emulator (VTE) is a terminal emulator widget for use in Gtk2 applications.

Bug Fix

Previously, Virtual Terminal Emulator (VTE) did not correctly determine how many bytes could be read before performing a UI update and proceeding further. As a consequence, running the cat command on a large text file resulted in the GNOME terminal responding slowly. A patch has been applied to address this bug, and the performance of the GNOME terminal is no longer slowed down in the described situation.
Users of vte are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
