XFCE Terminal resize poor performance

Hi all.  Using Fedora 9 a custom xf86-video-ati driver from the git
repo with a Radeon 9800XT  Using the GNOME terminal, resizing is
somewhat decent, but in XFCE, its Terminal application is horribly slow
resizing.  Definitely seems to be falling back to software.

Clearly fbFetch_x8r8g8b8 is the offending call, but tracing it back
with the --callback option it seems to be resorting to pixman somewhere
in libfb.so or libexa.so.

Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions?  I have tried XAA instead of
EXA to no avail.
