Gvim issue: slow scrolling of terminal output

amy_cgi
Gvim appears to have very slow scrolling for output from external commands.  This is an issue for me, particularly with :make and with spell checking.  To see the issue, run gvim, type a word, and then with the cursor over that word, type z= (for suggested spell corrections).  The issue is worse for me when I do :make, especially for a LaTeX document, since LaTeX spews all kinds of information to its output.

I understand that the terminal emulator for Gvim is rudimentary.  I guess I thought I'd put in a plug for either improving it, or, to make at least my life easier, plug in something like xterm or gnome-terminal to it instead (not sure how much work this would entail).  Is there a chance this will happen anytime soon?

Thanks,
Amy

Yes, this has always been like that, and the difference between Vim
and GVim is huge. I agree that it's a bit annoying, but no so much in
my case, I can live with it. Of course, I wouldn't be against an
improvement :-)

This is platform-depended issue. You need to mention your OS
and graphic libraries of your gvim (that is, :version output).

In gtk gvim (Linux), there is no slowness.
