My sid pbuilder is currently somewhat hosed (due to lack of current

Perhaps it's also somewhat related to the X server. Most of the CPU
usage during scrolling is in the X server. CPU load with Emacs 22 is
very low, though.
On my system, the redisplay activity is almost noticeable. There is a
slight effect, as if it were painted top-down (similar to those slide
effects in presentations).
