Description Chip Turner 2002-07-29 15:38:18 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.5 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20020712

Description of problem:
Best seen in bash with LANG=en_US.UTF-8.  Paste arbitrary text into the command
line until it is rather large (> 200-300 characters).  Each additional character
typed or pasted will force a redraw.  This redraw consumes excessive CPU, which
can be seen with top.  Happens in multiple X terminal emulators, seems to be
inside of readline itself.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Paste moderate amounts of data into a bash prompt.
