I believe that with Mule (at least) some operation that VM does in the
background is O(N^2) in buffer size; on a 1.8GHz AMD64 system I only
see the freezes when INBOX gets above about 60MB, but then things
rapidly get worse.
File I/O, specifically autosaves, can take a long time too if you have
many (> 10) VM folders open.
I see that on OS X, with its underperforming filesystem, but not on other
platforms (my VM use is mainly on 64-bit FreeBSD). Giacomo’s on Linux, so
that shouldn’t be it.

Sorry, not at the moment, but I plan to work on this a bit in the near
future. You should try reporting on the VM channels (M-x
report-vm-bug is the way to go, I think).
It should be possible to set vm-flush-interval to nil; this will only sync
in-memory changes using the normal autosave procedure and manual saves. This
might be good enough for Giacomo.
