RE: [XaraXtreme-dev] RE: [XaraXtreme-commits] Commit Complete

Your observation does not surprise me - there are problems with text 
selection updates in debug builds. Here, it can take seconds to update 
a text selection, most notably, when the selection is cleared. The 
last time I saw it I thought that something was seriously broken, but 
it is fine in non-debug builds, so this is probably due to excessive 
logging in wx that we do not see because it is suppressed but that 
still slows down everything to a crawl.
