Interesting. On my box the pause between a button press and action on
the screen are MUCH longer than 0.25 of a second.

If you can give me an approximate location in the codebase I can modify
my copy to remove the 0.25 second wait and see if that fixes what I
perceive to be an overly slow UI or not.
