           Summary: REGRESSION: typing in gmail pegs CPU
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.5
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P1
         Component: HTML Editing
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: ojan at chromium.org

This has been reported by a number of users on the Chrome dev channel and I've
seen this personally a number of times in WebKit nightlies.

Typing in rich-text in gmail at some point gets really slow. It's so slow that
it uses an entire core on my machine and takes up to a minute or two to catch
up to typing a single line of text.

It seems that it might be spellcheck related, but that's just speculation.
Hitting enter or clicking to move the cursor elsewhere always seems to fix it.

As far as I know, gmail team hasn't heard reports of this in non-WebKit
browsers or in Safari 4/Chrome 2. So this seems likely to be a recent
regression from the past week or two.
