Upon further testing scrolling bumps the CPU usage from 1% on idle to about 15-20%. This is LyX itself showing up on HTop, not X or anything else related. Scrolling sideways doesn't take as much resources since it takes its own sweet time. The lag is more visible when there are objects being scrolled over, rather than simple text. So I would assume a bit more CPU for that would be normal. Moreover, it doesn't take "100%" of the CPU cycles, as appears to be the main problem for similar problems reported around the web. -- GPG/PGP ID: C0711BF1
