In addition, the characters that begin a paragraph might be of
importance.  You say "text file", so I presume that is human-readable
text, but it could also be a file with many digits and punctuation
characters -- these make redisplay work harder.

IOW, please show some representative portion(s) of the file(s) in
question, or perhaps even the entire file, if you can share it.

Did that, and saw 20% to 30% CPU load, on a system that is powered by
a Core 2 Duo CPU, clearly much slower than yours.

Bottom line: I'm quite sure the file(s) you are using somehow hit the
display engine in its underbelly.
