Please try the current nightly build (1452) from http:// 
It features an optimized version of syntax highlighting that does  
till-the-end-rescan only for multi-line strings. Please let me know  
whether it solves your problem. If it's still too slow, please remove  
all functions from the code (i.e. just replace "function" by let's  
say "funct.ion") as to see whether the function scanning is the  
problem or not.
