Coming back to this old thread - the issue was reported in #12578 -
and it should be fixed now in master. There should not be a long pause
nor high memory usage for big layers anymore - indexing is done on a
reasonably small area (which may be still much larger than your
current extent - so it is not necessary to re-index after every
zoom/pan). Let me know if you still encounter some problems or have
some new problems due to the changes.
