Keyboard lag in the stock Messages App (2.1)?

I would switch to Handcent. It is free in the market and also has downloadable font packs. It allows speech to text and is just an all around better program.

The main reason I want to stay with the stock SMS app is because I need the notification on bottom of the lockscreen showing who sent the SMS, followed by a short preview. I know that Handcent and ChompSMS do not allow this (or am I wrong?)
