A lot of headings in your Org-Mode file can make Emacs unusably slow when you collapse all of them.
My original solution was to avoid collapsing them with
#+STARTUP: showeverything. Major problem with that approach is that you still can’t use collapsing because if you do, Emacs because again unusable.
Months ago I switched to nlinum and now there are no more performance issues, even on the largest file that I work on.

So someone with long org files not using linum should have no problem? 😉
I’m giving it a try and it does not seem to work too well with the Leuven theme: the larger font in the headlines prevent the display of the last digit.
1. `nlinum-format’ gives you more columns in the gutter.
2. Try a fixed-width font like DejaVu Sans Mono.
nlinum-mode makes it impossible to create a new frame when I’m in org-mode. I’ve reproduced the bug with an emacs -q, in a large org-file with nlinum-mode enabled. I’ll be filing a bug report at some point.
Thank you for doing so!
