Hey Pavel,

I have to confess guilt for this new behavior. What it is doing is syntax
coloring (or chromacoding) the file as well as calculating initial line
widths. Once you save the file, this info will be stored in the resource
fork and you will no longer encounter the delay. This is actually meant as
a performance tweak... no really :)

BTW David, this is on the Macintosh which in 5.4 has a reworked editor
(among other things)
