I cannot see that movie on my box.  Do you see delays between
characters on the same screen lines, or is the delay between screen
lines?

Try to look at the CPU load when this happens, in particular if more
than a single CPU core is busy (assuming you have a multi-core CPU).
If more than one core us busy, it probably means that more than one
thread is using the CPU (Emacs redisplay engine is single-threaded).
