What was the value of line-move-visual?  Under the default non-nil
setting, next-line is pretty expensive.

How large?

Does it matter whether you are close to the file's beginning or to its
end?

Does anything change if, after visiting the file, you first type

  M-: (font-lock-default-fontify-buffer) RET

and only then try scrolling?

If you remove those pre/post-command hooks, does the scrolling speed
improve significantly?  Can you find a hook that has the most profound
effect?

With or without bidi-display-reordering?  I asked about its effect
when bidi-display-reordering is left at its default t value.

I encourage you to provide more details about this slowdown, so that
bidirectional display in Emacs 24 could be sped up.  Turning off
bidi-display-reordering is not a supported mode, that is an internal
variable that is not designed to be toggled by users.
