It's fast for me with 40 buttons on a large screen and old(er)
hardware (a seven-year-old laptop).

I would first try with the default gtk+ theme, it's very fast, though
rather ugly. If that produces a good performance improvement, you
could hunt for a simple theme that's less unpleasant to look at. Next,
investigate your graphics driver and see if there is anything broken.
You could look at disabling gtk's double-buffering I suppose, though
that's rather desperate.
