the stack is non-empty when things start to run slow, and usually
stops on a small, but non-zero and non-one number. If I type only a
few events, it usually runs down to zero without the slowdown. After
all the events have run down to completion, the next event shows a
This seems to result also when I strike several keys at once.
I'm going to test this across several machines at my house.
