I'll answer some of these questions now, and others later:

Yes.  I also tried it with 4 and 3: identical results.

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 
zero queue.

This seems to result also when I strike several keys at once.

I'm going to test this across several machines at my house.
