FWIW, I opened org-issues.org and followed Matt's lead: at first, I got
almost instant response going from Other to Closed (using arrow-down)
and a slight hesitation (< 0.5s) going from Other to the previous
headline (Development Tasks).  After noodling around for a while
(including the motions that Eric F. suggested and getting no delays
there), I tried it again and could discern no delay going either
way. And I do run flyspell in org buffers.

This is on a fairly recent vintage laptop with an i7 quad core processor
(2.67GHz) and 4G of memory. That probably explains some of the difference
I see. Matt, what kind of hardware are you using?

Nick
