But don't you think that on an dual core AMDX2 4400+ machine I shouldn't see 
any delay merely inserting a line with the built-in script editor?

I mean -- even on 2.7.4, new stack, new button, new script -- I press return 
and I literally can watch as discreet events

-  the "end mouseup" text shift down,
-  the cursor go to the beginning of the current line...
-  and then mosey on down to the new blank line.

It's so slow I can even see the insertion point indicator blink once or 
twice before the new line is ready! It's been this way since version 2.7 and 
it's one of the reasons I continue to stick with 2.6.1.

I hope expecting Rev's edit window to keep up with my typing isn't going 
"hog wild" on feature requests.
