           Summary: terminal's visual bell is very slow with nouveau
           Product: DRI
           Version: XOrg CVS
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux (All)
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: DRM/other
        AssignedTo: dri-devel at lists.freedesktop.org
        ReportedBy: h.judt at gmx.at

In xterm or mlterm, the visual bell is very slow. In mlterm, you can sometimes
see the lines drawing, in xterm it is not always visible. In both cases, the
visual bell blocks the terminal for approximately 3 seconds. Any keyboard input
during that time will still be remembered, though.

This is specific to the nouveau driver and does not occur with radeon etc.
