Please ask those persons to report here directly, and to read the
responses and discussions.

AFAICT, these delays are due to Emacs searching the system for
appropriate fonts needed to display those unusual symbols.

Optimize your font configuration, so that the font search becomes
faster.

Emacs only looks for a font when it needs to display something.  when
previously invisible portion is about to be displayed, Emacs needs the
fonts to display it.
