Well maybe, cause I use the built in spell checker too, and it pretty  
much makes it useles in LaTeX. Try this: Write a long line spreading  
across say 10 lines in softwrap and enable spell checker. Then try to  
add something to the line etc. This littereally takes _seconds_ on my  
machine. I don't know if it matters how many words are miss-spelled,  
but that's likely to make it even slower I suppose (for that, use the  
lorem snippet to generate the text).

That said, it's not really a problem when used in the languages where  
the checker is only applied to limited portions.
