It may be true that the display code is very inefficient there.  But
I don't think it is that reasonable to expect an X program to be
snappy fast over a high latency WAN connection.  There are many
issues with throwing a display remotely.  Many programs have been
written to try to optimize it.  But it remains a hard problem.

This is the only interaction that it is slow over this connection. Once
disabled, it runs smoothly.

FWIW, I either:

- Run emacs locally and access remote files using tramp
- Run a vnc client/server and run in that window

vnc is 'snappy', even with a remote connection through a VPN tunnel.
