I was, in fact, testing with one of the new Firewire iBooks.

It is interesting that the "slow event" firings can be sped up simply 
by pressing the shift key a few times, and slows back down when you 
stop.  There are no serious delays in real time, however, almost as 
soon as you stop typing, the delay kicks in.
