I think another reason of the slowness is this part (in

      /* Restore face of the iterator to what they were before the
         display vector entry (these entries may contain faces).  */
      it->face_id = it->saved_face_id;

      if (it->dpvec + it->current.dpvec_index == it->dpend)
          /* Recheck faces after display vector */
          it->stop_charpos = IT_CHARPOS (*it);

Because of this, it seems that handle_stop is called for
every character after an eight bit character.  Isn't it
possible to tune it?  First of all, why should we recheck
faces after display vector?
