I believe that particular case is because of the autocomplete code,
which for some reason is extremely slow, at least for the first time
it's used in a session.
I think the auto-completion and menu generation should be done
completely asynchronously, i.e. non-blocking. I can wait for the
suggestion of auto-completion or icons in the menu, but I don't want to
wait for things I type or display of the menu.
