Some applications render quite slowly in emacs terminal emulator. One
example is alsamixer, which has a very simple ui. Another example is
mc. The editor of the beast, instead, works like a charm, at least in
its legacy incarnation. I think the issue is with the heavy use of ansi
colors by some applications.

I've read other similar bug reports saying that a number of errors
appear in the *Messages* buffer regarding missing colors or something
like that. Well, this is not the problem anymore. Everything works fine,
no errors are shown, it's just that the rendering is slow.
