It doesn't, not in the display engine.

Can you give more quantitative description of the slowdown? E.g., how
much time does it take to move the cursor by one character or one
line, or to insert or delete a single character?
If you replace cc-mode Lisp files in v24 with those in v23, does the
problem go away?
