EmEditor: Updating markers on scroll bar slows down regular expressions

When I work on big files and run a regex, then close the Find window and try to make a change on the document, there are huge delays with the dialog “Updating markers on scroll bar” and the (closed) regex window slowing down the whole document, to the point where I had to make the changes with Notepad++. The solution?

Disable the markers on vertical scroll bar. Go to Tools > Properties for current configuration, select Scroll on the left, and uncheck "Show Markers on Vertical Scroll Bar" on the right.
