Wow, yes, it's pretty slow.
I do suspect that, like some other areas of Moodle, the wiki may not have been designed with performance in mind. I strongly suspect it loads the list of all pages when displaying each page, but that wouldn't cause a problem in your case as there aren't that many. But does it load the content of every page? I would assume not.
It's possible there could be a simple explanation for poor performance in your system such as a slow webserver or database server, or too many users.
Regardless, I'm not intending to fix performance issues in the old wiki - our database servers here are ridiculously fast and nobody will be creating very large wikis anyhow, so it is probably good enough for the next few months, and as mentioned in another thread, 1.8 will include the new wiki instead which hopefully will get rid of all the problems of the old one!
So we will probably be moving to the new wiki in late January here. (I know that's a bit ahead of where most people are, but we will be using 1.7 before it is released, and the same thing will probably happen with 1.8. As a major institution, should we be running pre-beta software? Maybe not, but I don't make those decisions.)
As a consequence it's not worth us making any fundamental changes to it... sorry about that.
