Thanks! Patch work, but I don't have big speed improve on modern
hardware (4 cores, x86, fglrx). I just run 'time tar -Oxf
linux-3.3.tar.xz', is it correct way to measure terminal speed? In any
case original st slightly faster then mrxvt (Great result!). Patched
st slightly faster then original. Main branch and xft-branch have
approximately same speed.

Not sure about tearing - I don't do test yet.

P.S. Can some one tell why st run slightly slower when I switch to
empty tag in dwm? I suspect some speed improve in this case.
