The file viewer has become much slower for large files, which annoys some users.

What exactly are these regressions? If I view a 40MB text file on a
256MB system pressing End actually gets me to the end much faster than
with a binary from June 2005 (5 vs 60 secs). Opening of the file is not
significantly slower (if at all) than with the old version.

Is this really an issue (that should stop us from doing a release)?

You should try mc-4.6.1 then. It gets you to the end immediately. Note that we had a long time where mc-4.6.1 had already been branched, but I had rewritten the viewer in -HEAD.
