I don't really know why that would be, but a guess might be that the 
closer to 0,0, the fewer pixels the engine has to count in order to 
determine where the redraw should occur. But what do I know.

If you're just moving a single thing to a specific point (without the 
"move" command) it seems like you wouldn't need to lock the screen at 
all. But maybe other things are happening at the same time.

Did you set the layermode of the ship to "dynamic"? That will allow fast 
caching, and its for exactly this sort of thing.
