I have noticed similar behavior with some of my Scribus projects, currently the one I working on 
now. I use Adobe Acrobat 7 as my PDF viewer while in Windows. My PDF's display in Acrobat like I 
have a dial-up connection to the Internet. Foxit is the same.

What make up my Scribus documents are placed PDF's as image files. The image PDF's are small in size 
and the more I add to my document the slower Scribus gets when exporting out to a final PDF file for 

I made a screencast of the problem if anyone is interested.
