So I tried to measure the difference.  I started two versions of emacs with --no-init, loaded nothing, and immediately ran elp-instrument-function on "ibuffer".  Here are the results:

emacs(GNU Emacs MailScanner warning: numerical links are often malicious: 23.0.60.1 (i386-mingw-nt5.1.2600) of 2008-02-20 on U0103223-XPA)
Function Name Call Count Elapsed Time Average Time
ibuffer        1           0.0           0.0

Function Name Call Count Elapsed Time Average Time
ibuffer        1           0.032         0.032

I ran elp-instrument-function again and got:
ibuffer        1           0.047         0.047

The time difference is very small, but with a loaded up emacs config the time becomes very noticeable.
I built emacs on windows-xp using cygwin(-mno-cygwin however), ming32-make.  Both versions of the build where 'configured' the same:

It seems that the performance issues are resolved by using uniscribe's
built in caching for glyph encoding, and avoiding explicit encoding in
the gdi backend.
