I'd say if you have a mapfile that is taking a minute to draw that you
have a problem. If I were you I would use shp2img with the debug option
to see layer draw times, and focus on the layer that is causing the
trouble at that scale. If I was stuck on the cause of the problem, I
might email this mailing list the layer text from the mapfile and a
description of the data source, and maybe someone can find the issue.
