So, I finally managed to track down a peculiarity.

On Windows (7), there is no scrolling issue with the keyboard, or the
mouse scroll wheel (or touchpad vertical scroll). However, there is
lag if I use the scroll bar (by dragging with the mouse).

On Linux, if I start LyX using a desktop file, I cannot seem to scroll
at all (keyboard). This is the initial problem I was reporting, where
the cursor appears to be "stuck" and won't move at all, and sometimes
it may move a character or two after holding a direction for some

If I start it from the commandline, however, scrolling works, albeit
in a crippled way. If for example I'm highlighting with SHIFT, it
slows to a crawl. This is not exhibited in Windows. Scrolling with
mouse wheel works good as in Windows, and scrolling with the scroll
bar is laggy as well.

So the common behaviour is scrolling with mouse wheel (OK) and
scrolling with scroll bar (slow). Linux-specific issue is no keyboard
scrolling when starting outside of commandline, and slow response when
it does work.

I'm going to have to do some troubleshooting within our distribution
first to rule out any distribution-specific issue. All cases
reproduced with default splash file.
