Something else about slow brushes:
I noticed delayed reacting of brushes, when they are bigger size. Some brushes 
didn`t work at all anymore, especially when a pen tablet was used. With mouse 
it was faster, but still not good. After unchecking "show brush outline" in the 
"preferences"-"image windows" section the problem was gone.
