This card renders sub second but is unresponsive for an additional 14

This is after I made 1 minor edit in the script with the message box 
open. If I open the IDE without opening the script editor or message box 
then it only takes 4 seconds of which almost 3 seconds is in IDE 
scripts. I can expect some IDE overhead but waiting 14 to 20 seconds to 
get the IDE back after a minor edit that might not even be on this card 
is a problem. It slows development down to a crawl. The IDE hang is 
proportional to the number of fields on the card. The same card with 
only say 3 groups with 1 field each of 20 characters causes the IDE hang 
to go down to one second.

I see similar things every once in a while, but unexpectedly so I don't 
have a causal relationship to narrow down. I always just figure I did 
something weird in my code.
