I also noticed the cursor "stucking" around braces when moving it with the arrow keys. I can't say this would be slowing down the work, but it's getting more slower if the CPU has some other things to do. So i can imagine, if someone has a very slow CPU - say an old 233MHz engine - this would not be that nice.
I mainly use a 233MHz machine and never really have trouble with it, but I don't hold down the arrow keys ever. The scrollbar can be a bit jerky sometimes, but still quite usable. I tend to use the mouse scroll wheel and page up/down. But, I have quite a lot of memory, 320900 kB (MemTotal with /proc/meminfo) and have disabled unnecessary processes, and run Xfce.
The only thing that really slows down the system that I do is running the autotools through Geany ;-)
