Does using a different font change anything?

To see which function takes most of the time, please use
profiler-start, press C-n, then after you see CPU load for some time,
invoke profiler-report.  It is best to do that after manually loading
simple.el in source form.

Also, apply the patch I sent in
http://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=14836#8 and post the
contents of *Messages* after leaning on C-n for some time in this

I also asked to try reducing the keyboard auto-repeat rate, and see if
that makes any difference.
