Did you try making an adjustment to scrolling in GameOptions ?

MISC tab -> scroll speed

Re - laggy scrolling.

That usually occurs with me if I am trying to run the game in full-screen mode. It works just fine at the same resolution in windowed mode, at desktop resolution.

Basically Full-screen mode is only there because of historical reasons (it used to be the fastest mode, in windows 98 and perhaps early XP). Modern windows video drivers don't really handle that mode well. In addition, you will see more scrambled palette problems in windowed mode because modern windows assume that mode is obsolete, windows 7 had to have a special batch file written since it uses the game's 256 colour palette for "aero" desktop effects.

So if it is set to "Full screen" mode then switch to "Windowed" mode and the lag should disappear.

Linux Mint, using Wine on default settings. Works a treat without graphics corruption of any kind.

Every time I start the game (using either .exe) I get a popup box that says "auto-hide detected" and warns me about graphics corruption. I disregard it and click through; it all works fine.

I also took it for a spin in Linux mint (with Wine, it's great how easy SPWW2 installed in a non-native env and just runs!) and it works great.

Yes I play fullscreen. I didn't see palette problem.
I understand now why I feel games are badly made: as they don't use fullscreen, when I go in bottom of screen then it makes appear my Windows taskbar, it's boring.
I didn't test with SP at now (writing from work office).

The game will run better if you use windowed mode and the borderless gaming app to get the "full screen" effect.

Information on that is in the game guide near the beginning under "Game Requirements" there is a link provided. It's a small program and works well with the game

What Don says is true. I use window mode and borderless gaming it goes into full screen and works perfectly with no issues.

No it does not work, winSP is not compatible with BorderlessGaming, as it ask to remove automatic taskbar. Other games are okay with both, BlessGaming and windows taskbar.
