FWIW, I didn't see any such adverse effects of stealth fontification
on any of the machines I work on, although I do remember reading
complaints like you mention above.  For the record, I have in my
~/.emacs these customizations related to stealth fontification:

  (setq jit-lock-stealth-time 16)
  (setq jit-lock-stealth-nice 0.5)
  (setq jit-lock-stealth-verbose t)
  (setq jit-lock-defer-contextually t)
