I've changed it to GetCharWidth32, which is in the list on that MSDN page - see 
patch below. I've checked this against all bitmap fonts on my system and it 
produces the same results (and emacs looks to behave the same, including in 
terms of performance).

This function only works for bitmap fonts, but hopefully if GetGlyphOutlineW 
ever fails, the reason is that the font is a bitmap one! (And if not, and 
GetCharWidth32 fails too, there's the same fallback as before in the form of

Agh, my mistake - I should have included start-slow.el, not start-bigline.el. 
Sorry. start-slow.el looks like this:

(set-face-attribute 'default nil :font "fixed")
(switch-to-buffer (find-file "usb.ids"))
(goto-char (point-max))

Maybe that will show up the problem? But it sounds rather like your computer 
just doesn't suffer from this issue, for whatever reason...



P.S. my two PCs are as follows, and unpatched emacs performs poorly on both of 
them when using bitmap fonts:

- 3.4GHz Core i7 desktop, 16GB RAM, GeForce 560Ti, Windows 7
- 2.53GHz Core 2 Duo laptop, 8GB RAM, GeForce 9400M, Windows 7 (this is a 
Macbook Pro - the performance is also bad running in a VM)

So this could be something to do with NVidia display drivers on Windows 7, I 
suppose? Though I'd expect the VM to have its own drivers, suggesting that it 
might not actually be the graphics card vendor...

The previous fallback - which will still be used if GetCharWidth32W
fails - was to call GetTextExtentPoint32W. This can be rather slow,
mainly due to having to create a DC for it each time - but not to say
that using the cache isn't cheaper than GetTextExtentPoint32W anyway.
