File > Print Selection > Save As PDF causes the graphic to be
rasterized.  This is why it displays so much quicker in the viewer
application.  You can get the same behavior from File > Save Selection
As > PDF by clicking on the Options button in the Save As dialog and
setting Graphics Containing Smooth Shading > Use Bitmap
Representation.

Unfortunately, this results in a larger file size because of a
limitation of Mathematica 6 where it does not compress exported
bitmaps.  This limitation has been removed for a future release.
