Just the once, and it just appends after a scrolling  field in another
window and puts to the message box (it's really so that I can log/debug in

 In that case you're quite right and the logging handler doesn't matter.

I put a log after every statement in the handler to see where the time was

This is with 6.6.  I found that with a new stack, the time dropped

I then found another time-hole.  Setting the disabled of a combobox takes
about 400ms, and this occurred in a brand new stack, too.

I then loaded the stacks with 5.5, and the thumbpos still took something
like 23 ms, but the disabled dropped to a couple of ms.

I knew the 6 serious was low-beta grade all along, but this is kind of
ridiculous . . .
