[OSM-talk] Has JOSM become clunkier?

Since I updated to the last tested version, JOSM has been slower to 
respond. For example, after I download from the XAPI 
relation[network=US:AL] and download all relation members (this will 
take a while), zooming to the full extent (hit 1) takes a few seconds, 
as does doing anything at this scale. Even doing normal actions at 
normal zoom seems to take slightly longer than it used to.

The only thing listed in the updates on loading JOSM is "Select and 
delete mode now have better visual indication what the next action will 
do (highlighting, cursor changes)." This seems like it could cause these 
slowdowns, though I can't find a way to disable this feature (which I 
honestly don't find useful) to test if it is the cause.
