Emacs-w3m mailing list brings gnus (and emacs) to a grinding halt

User-agent: Gnus/5.13 (Gnus v5.13) Emacs/23.0.90 (gnu/linux)

Gretings all.

On 2003-02-03 I re-compiled Emacs/Gnus from cvs - 23.0.60 to 23.0.90.

All seems well so far but for one glitch.  When reading the emacs-w3m
mailing list, which is mainly in Japanese, top shows emacs using 79%-85%
cpu, and it takes several minutes to display any selected message.

No other mailing lists or newsgroups are affected so I think it must be
a language/encoding/glyph issue of some sort.

Simple actions such as marking a single message for expiry take at least
two minutes.  That is I press the 'E' and then have to wait that long
for the action to complete before I can proceed.

I have noticed a great improvement in the rendering of the Japanese
characters.  Previously, those that were displayed were far to large but
most were shown as placeholders of some sort, but now they are all
rendered and, to my non-Japanese reading eye, seem quite elegantly

So, my question is, does anybody have any idea why the slowdown?  And
maybe where I could start looking for a solution?


PS: At first I thought that maybe it was the font server but nothing
    else seems to be affected.  

What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nath Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't
you understand?
