I'm guessing it has something to do with either the openGL code or your video card (driver perhaps).
Galaga runs at 60fps on my old P2/266MHz laptop (the non opengl version though) so the emulator should be able to cope with your setup as well.
Strange how people immediately point to java when something doesn't perform well, isn't it? ;-)
Well, maybe it isn't that strange, given java's performance like 5 years ago... -shrug-

Thanks for testing!
