Aloha Tom,

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.
