That's what I suspected initially. However, my graphics engine was set 
to native by default. I just tried all three engines:
* native: around 100ms
* raster: around 100ms
* opengl: greater than 300ms

I tested it on Arch Linux x86_64, 1920x1080, python2 2.7.3-4, sip 
4.14.5-1, qt4 4.8.4-16, python2-pyqt 4.10-1.

That's really weird... I will try to set up an openSUSE box in my 
VirtualBox to see if that works.
