Lightroom 5 is unusably slow when resizing adjustment brush under Windows 7

I’ve tried LR5 and LR5.2 RC. I’m running Windows 7 on two different system, one is an i7-720QM with an SSD and 8GB RAM, the other is a Xeon 5620 with 6GB RAM. Both exhibit the problem. The issue is that if you select the adjustment brush and hit either the [ or ] key several times to resize the brush, the brush size gradually increments, taking 6 to 8 seconds to resize 6 clicks. The same is true if the mouse wheel is used to resize the brush.

General use of the adjustment brush and retouching brush is also a lot slower than it was in LR4.4.
