Early versions of emacs 23 on the mac had some problems that kept them
from running spell check. It worked, but took about a minute to find
the next word. The slow replace-string operations you see might be
symptom of the problem.
The good news is that these problems have been fixed downstream from
23.1.1. I ended up compiling my own Gnu Emacs using the appropriate
patch: ftp://ftp.math.s.chiba-u.ac.jp/emacs/. I've installed three of
these so far. All three get used all day and we haven't noticed any
problems. We have 23.1.95.
The compile requires a few things from macports and the developer
toolkit, of course, because the mac doesn't come with gcc installed.
I don't pay much attention to this, and don't really know what those
cryptic library names mean, so can't be more specific.
