Figured this out, with the help of a working elp. Turned out to not
have anything to do with font-lock whatsoever; sorry about that false
It was the new settings of interprogram-cut-function; I frequently
use a remote X display and it was taking 0.3 seconds each time it
updated the clipboard selection. The following:
restores the performance of older versions of XEmacs. Since the new
documented behavior doesn't sound good anyway (I frequently
separately use the kill ring and the clipboard for different purposes
at the same time), that's a perfect solution for me other than the
fact that it's both not the default and not documented in the user
manual (but it is in lispref, which is how I figured it out after
reading the definition of kill-new in simple.el).
Excellent. Thanks for putting in the time to figure this one out.
