gv is a step slower

I've recently done a fresh install of 9.04 (previous was 6.0.6) and gv
is now a step slower.  I use it to view .ps files with 100s of pages.
Before I could page up or down very quickly, with the window
refreshing instantly.  Now it takes ~0.5 sec to refresh the window.

I've recently gone through something similar with R and a Debian
upgrade from etch->lenny.  R now uses a different graphics library and
we were able to speed things up by setting the old library in our R
scripts.  Might something similar be the case with gv?
