Maybe there are two effects involved. Could be text properties are getting 
copied too. The second effect can be due to text encoding issues.

You could try to synchronise the text encoding issue. If GNU Emacs would use 
the same default encoding as the X server uses, then some time could be saved.

The other issue can be solved by telling the X server not to handle text 
properties – and/or setting this in GNU Emacs.

Sometimes I think that the delays I encounter are due to not enough memory, 
which would lead to swapping out some parts of the programmes involved.



Don't just do something, sit there.
