That's good...maybe something a bit closer to the auto formatting and 
replace features, and whatever organizes them?

Who knows, it could be something outside the SE that just happens to 
interfere, I don't like to speculate on exact causes or locations - but 
the SE itself is a bit suspect because if I remember, the issues got 
serious around the same time the SE and related parts of LC got some 
major new features. Definitely got bad in 9 (with Defender) whereas 
perfectly usable on 8 with Defender.

Seeing the files accessed within a short time period while typing would 
be useful...but if unlucky, it might involve conflicts or special 
conditions and require having symptoms showing. Hopefully not. If very 
lucky this could be debugged on any platform, not just Windows.

Assuming the "AV door" is indeed file access.

Hope it's not super hard to track down after all. :)
