When I scroll, most of the buffer redraws immediately, but a few
lines at the bottom of the buffer only redraw after a noticeable
delay (200ms or so, I would guess). You can see a screen recording


Steps to reproduce:

1. emacs -Q
2. Open a file with lots of syntax to be highlighted (for instance,
   just save https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emacsas an HTML page
   and open it in Emacs).
3. Start scrolling with C-v, and wait a couple of seconds after
   each scroll.

It's easiest to reproduce with a big file with syntax highlighting
enabled, but it also manifests on many other occasions:

  * When scrolling an ordinary textfile(with font-lock disabled)
  * When pressing Enter in a buffer, forcing other lines to shift
  * When switching the focus from one buffer to another,
    cursor moves only after a delay
  * Sometimes parts of selection don't disappear after C-g
  * Sometimes parts of the buffer that take longer to redraw
    are just few characters in the middle of a line (i.e. it's not
    necessarily a prefix/suffix of visible text)

This all only started happening after I upgraded my system.
Unfortunately, the upgrade was pretty huge and so it's hard to
pinpoint a specific package that caused this. The version of Emacs
stayed the same.

I triedcompiling Emacs from source (August 19, commit 4a80c8bb) so that
it would use my version of GTK (I have 3.20.9, Emacs in my distro's
repository was compiled with 3.16.16), but that didn't fix anything.
