Sluggish terminals

I'm getting slow response to key presses in terminal emulators.  I've
observed the behavior since installing 10.10 (clean install).  It's not
a serious problem.  The delay is generally not more than a split second,
though I have seen it take longer than a full second to register 

It's happening in both gnome-terminal and urxvt.  With and without
compositing.  Any ideas on what the cause might be?
