It starts at the end of the buffer, but then moves all the way back
to the beginning.

And yes, I know why: it's because scroll-conservatively causes
redisplay to examine buffer text around point, when it decides where
to place window-start.  This is triggered by redisplay after the move
to the end of the buffer.

True.  But I'm not sure this is relevant to the slow redisplay.

No, going to BOB is instantaneous.  The problem happens in redisplay
after going to EOB.

Yes, because Emacs is at EOB.
