Do the files have particularly long lines? Are they plain-text or source
files? If source files, what language are they being highlighted as?
Attaching the source file in question may be helpful too if you care to do

I've noticed some input lag with files hundreds of lines long with no
lines over 80 chars on my netbook, but not 50.
