Description lav 1999-09-28 14:06:59 EDT
xterm consumes cpu when selecting text with mouse (holding
down left mouse button) and when a program working under the
xterm outputs something to stdout.

Easy way to reproduce:
	while :; do echo aaa; sleep 1; done
	(while this runs, select text and hold down left mouse
button)
	watch cpu load.
	release left mouse button - spinning stops.
