I must admit, I'm not surprised.

In the longer run, we should aim to make Emacs fast enough even in
those modes.  I can't promise anything, but if you can provide sample
files and steps to trigger the slow behavior, maybe someone will be able
to find the culprit as well as a fix/workaround.  Of course, it is quite
likely that the slowdown is due to a combination of things, so "the fix"
is a long and painful one, so it might be difficult to find someone
motivated enough.
