DrRacket 5.2.1 scrolling is speedy for me under Ubuntu 12.04 on a 
5-year-old laptop.

This is with a DrRacket I built from source code, not precompiled, but I 
doubt that matters.  And yes, it's all anti-aliased.

Just a wild guess, but are you using a very slow X driver, such as an 
SVGA one, rather than one more specific to your video device?

(Not endorsing Ubuntu here.  I just have a machine handy for testing.)
