It is perhaps only an issue of the Windows port.

I can see the problem, for example, by visiting any file and just
scrolling down. With the new backend, when the cursor reaches the
bottom and the window is recentered, the delay in redrawing the bottom
half is clearly noticeable (often half a second or more). That's on a
3GHz Pentium IV with Windows XP Pro. With the old backend, the redraw
is instantaneous.
