thing called coalesced updates was introduced in Tiger. It seems to
be a bit controversial implementation that blocks the screen
rendering so that it can be synchronized with the beam. Another
source of lack of speed is the fact that even when the keyboard
repeat rate is set to fastest it is still quite slow.
The worst problems are seen when both lazyupdate and showcmd options
are set. Unsetting one of them will help as turning the beam
synchronization off with Quartz Debug (that is provided with
Developer Tools). One could also try setting scrolljump setting to a
bit bigger number.
These are not permanent solutions. We'll work for providing a better
one when we have the time, hopefully soon.
