I haven't tried emacs23 yet, but on recent emacs-snapshot packages I did
not experience much of a slowdown compared to emacs22. There is often a
delay when Emacs has to display characters that cannot be represented
with the current fontset; in this case it takes time to find a a
suitable font. However, subsequent scrolling should be fast.
Maybe the fact that emacs23 links against libm17n-0 and libotf0 while
emacs-snapshot does not can explain the difference.
