There is generally a substantial pause when I delete words however
(kill-word or backward-kill-word).
Actually, kill-ring-save (M-w) also exhibits horrible performance, so it
appears not to be a strictly display-related problem. Does copying text to
the kill-ring involve a lot of X clipboard activity?
Should it matter, I'm running on a Mac, BTW, using Apple's XQuartz 2.1.6
