You can run GNU Screen inside an Emacs term or ansi-term.  I expect you
can do the same with Tmux.  There's a bit about doing it with Screen
here http://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/GnuScreen , there are couple of
gotchas and things you have to setup in Screen's rc file.  This way, if
you have to reboot X and/or Emacs then you can reconnect to the Screen
session.

I think disconnecting from the virtual terminal that's churning out all
the output should fix the responsiveness of Emacs.  But, when your
actually viewing a lot of data I think Emacs will be slower using M-x
term and Screen than using M-x shell.
