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):
Steps to Reproduce:
Paste moderate amounts of data into a bash prompt.
This is fixed now I think.
