The machine is 1800Mhz. It's only slow on the VESA framebuffer. I tried again using DFBTerm and xterm and those were both fine.
Still, compared with other applications on the framebuffer (midnight commander, less), it is a lot slower at repainting during horizontal scrolling. Less, for example, scrolls horizontally very quickly in comparison, even on the vesafb.
It occurs whether I'm in tree view or not, but only when scrolling horizontally. Vertical scrolling is at least as fast as the fast keyboard repeat rate, which is the way I like it. And activating tree view is the easiest way to ensure horizontal scrolling is necessary.
