The above line by itself is not a problem, so, if you could send us the 
entire file, I'll try to have a look at it.
How big is the document? Are the lines very long? Have you checked out 
the latest revision?
I find it slow at times too, but it's hard to pin down. To begin with, 
lines like the above are not colored properly anyway, and that's not 
too easy to fix at the time.
I would recommend, as a possibly temporary solution, to move all your 
newcommands and other preamble instructions to another file, say 
begin.tex, and then use \input{begin.tex}. If you tend to reuse your 
commands, this will be very handy in the long run anyway, and it might 
make things faster.
