Ok, should I make this edit only for master branch, or for emacs-25
branch first & then merge it into master branch. In the latter case, it
would be helpful if you send me a pointer to instructions how to carry
out the merge with git.

FYI I have not tested that the bug is also there for emacs-25 branch, I
just can't imagine that it would not be there also.

VBR,
        Vincent.

PS: FYI, attached is patch to master branch.

+** Screen refresh is slow when there are special characters for which no 
suitable font is available
+
+If the display is too slow in refreshing when you scroll to a new
+region, or when you edit the buffer, it may be due to this that some
+characters cannot be displayed in the default font, and Emacs is
+spending too much time in looking for a suitable font to display them.
+
+You can suspect this if you have several characters that are displayed
+as small rectangles containing a hexadecimal code inside.
+
+The solution is to install the appropriate fonts on your machine. For
+instance if you are editing a text with a lot of math symbols, then
+installing a font like 'Symbola' should solve this problem.
