One reason why the motion in a folded buffer is slow:
calling next line on the heading of a folded tree must
move down potentially thousands of buffer lines.  In each buffer
line it checks if the text is still invisible and then moves one.
So this kind of buffer motion is not optimized for outline
buffers.  Still, what Matt and others report is unacceptable,
and there must be a solution.  I have very slight delays
in org-issues.org, but nothing like 5 seconds.   Fractions
of a second, at most.
