When I enable the option "Show Hidden Files" scrolling becomes really slow in dolphin.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. enable the option "Show Hidden Files" in menu
scrolling is very slow.
scrolling speed should be the same as with "Show Hidden Files" disabled.
video driver: nvidia 313.18. (the same was with drivers < 313.18)
I'm using xrender but it is slow without composite also.
Thanks for the bug report. Sounds like bug 310662, even though that bug only mentions hidden symlinks.
I have same issue, tested on KDE 4.8.*-4.10.1 with Gentoo, OpenSuse LiveCD on different computers with ATI's close and open sourced drivers + intel. Compositing OpenGL, graphics system - raster. I thought everybody have this issue, but it seems somebody just have it and somebody not, just like here https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=233583
Same results in compact and details view mode.

Fix slow scrolling when hidden files or symbolic links are shown
The problem was that we drawed the overlays using KIconLoader, which can
be very slow, every time an item appeared on the screen. This commit
makes sure that not only the icon, but the icon including overlays is
cached in QPixmapCache. Therefore, the overlay drawing is done just once
for each icon+overlays combination.
For previews, the overlay drawing is done in KFileItemModelRolesUpdater
just after the preview is received.
