Alice fixed this bug a few months ago. The hardcopy code was calling
#_DrawChar for every character instead of accumulating a bunch of
characters and calling #_DrawText. Her comment says that this made
it twice as fast. My testing today on our LaserWriter looks like a
much better improvement. I'll send you a patch if you want.
