I think the issue is reproducible using the extremely-useful 'cmatrix'
program. You get a lot of stutter and 100%+ X CPU usage when running
it with st while X stays at around 15% CPU usage with urxvt running
cmatrix buttery-smoothly.

If it is indeed the same issue we could try to compare the screen
drawing in both code bases and see what they do differently to keep X
at bay.
