It's caused by the syntax highlighting, which uses regular expression
and slows down to a crawl on long lines. Do ":syntax off" and you'll be
able to work fine. Alternatively you can limit syntax highlighting to
the fist n columns by doing for example "set synmaxcol=120".

vim hangs when loading/scrolling attached file
Status in Vi IMproved:
Status in “vim” package in Ubuntu:
When the attached file is loaded in vim it lags massively and uses 100% of one cpu. Tested on two computers, maverick and oneiric. The maverick instance of vim is untouched/as installed.
Something to do with really long lines/wrapping?
