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
for very large text files.

Title:
  autosave freezes editor and loses keystrokes

Status in gedit package in Ubuntu:
  Confirmed

Bug description:
  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) :
  abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz

  If autosave runs during that interval, here is an example of what ends up 
being processed :
  abcdefghpqrstuvwxyz

  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.
