I haven't played with OS X enough to know, but does its X server support
the Render extension? If not, that's probably why GTK+ 2 is slower.

It seems so. Hard to tell for me whether this is just the API extension or a hardware accelerated implementation. Do you have any idea how to gather this data?
I've noticed this too, using an X server on a commercial UNIX platform.
Owen has talked about performance improvements for non-Render platforms,
and I'm certainly hoping they become a reality in the next year.
Meanwhile I've profiled gnumeric while waiting for the scrollwheel
action to catch up and indeed it seems that the scrolling causes a lot
of activity both in GTK and the X server with the activity in the X
server being mostly blit operations resulting in memcpys. So it seems
that updates are a really costly operation which should be better avoided
and actions to cause them reduced by coalescing and/or grouped...
