Scrolling how (by what commands)?  What kind of text?  What was the
major mode in that buffer?  Some modes are more expensive in redisplay
than others.  It is impossible to tell whether 50% of a core is

Does it behave better if you set redisplay-dont-pause to a non-nil
value?  This will be the default in Emacs 24.

If you tell the details I asked about before, someone might be able to
give you more advice.
