Default even VIM runs slowly with KDE 4.1/NVIDIA

I never thought the day would come. VIM runs slow on my current system:

2.5ghz dual core
nvidia quadro FX 570M
2GB memory
KDE4.1.1 / Kubuntu

By slow I mainly mean slow scrolling, and not nearly as smooth as my pentium II downstairs. This is particularly noticeable when doing vsplit.

For those interested in reproducing the result, you can try running the following as non-sudo so you don't screw things up, but just to see what I mean:

1. vim /etc/X11/xorg.conf
2. type ":vsplit /etc/X11/xorg.conf"
3. use "ctrl-w-w" to hop between the split views
4. up/down arrow keys to scroll up and down to see what I mean
5. type ":q!" to quit

What's even weirder is that this only occurs during vsplit (vertical split), but not split (which defaults to horizontal split). Anyone?
