I also have to mention that the larger the text file the longer the UI
locks up and drops characters which can be a very frustrating problem

autosave freezes editor and loses keystrokes
Status in gedit package in Ubuntu:
The very useful autosave feature that runs every five minutes locks up
the editor when it runs, and when it happens, any keystrokes typed
during the interval are lost.
Such that when typing the following (for example) :
If autosave runs during that interval, here is an example of what ends up
being processed :
As is obvious, keystrokes for "ijklmno" are lost.
This happens every time.
I am not sure if this is specific to gedit, or to the input framework
I am using (IBus, and at times Anthy for Japanese input)
This is quite annoying as it forces me to re-read absolutely
everything I typed to make sure gedit did not miss anything.
