Bug: File with large number of lines chokes the editor

Example:
Download the package from here: https://github.com/Marak/faker.js
Then open the file "build/faker.js" (File is only 1.308 Kb in size, but contains 70655 lines!)

When I open that file, I get to enter a few characters, then auto completer kicks in and the editor locks up. (No crash. It just locks up and I have to manually cancel the task)

Try disabling all your plugins... I think they might be to blame, because for me editing this file seems fine, and AutoComplete works, too.

That was my initial thought too. But disabling all plugins didn't make any differences. The editor still locks up. (after +1minute, I can enter a couple more character and then it locks up again)
If you need it, I can make a screen capture or send you my config files?

Ok, that might help. I tried to edit (and use autocomplete) at the very beginning of the file and inside a function, wasn't able to experience the slowdown.

I've previously reported the editor hanging when trying to deal with a large files. Tonight I have loaded a SQL file with only 427 lines and the editor hangs to the point that I have to kill the application. This particular file does have some *very* long lines, but WeBuilder has never coped with large files. Chucking the file at UltraEdit eats it!
