On Windows, doing this is a mistake (but not because it causes
sluggish redisplay).

I cannot reproduce this here.  What font is used to display that
character?  You can find this out with "C-u C-x =" with the cursor on
the character.

On my system, I have the Symbola font installed, which is used for
displaying this character, and the problem doesn't happen.

As another thing to try, set inhibit-compacting-font-caches to a
non-nil value, and see if that helps.
