I’m using Atom on Ubuntu, with display over X11 to a Win7 PC. If I pause typing or cursoring for >1 second, there is a 2 second delay before display updates resume.
This occurs only in the editor and tree parts of the main window.
I do NOT see this issue when cursoring in the menus, e.g. cursoring up/down in the Packages menu,
Steps to reproduce:
- Open a source file and place the cursor somewhere in the source code
- Hit the [A] key every 0.5 seconds, and watch the a’s appear in your source code.
- Now hit your [A] key every 1.5 seconds instead (i.e. slower than once per second). Notice how the a’s appear after random delays of 0-2 seconds.
There appears to be a timeout happening if I pause my typing for more than 1 second. Resuming takes 2 seconds, which is very frustrating when typing or navigating source code, and essentially renders Atom useless in this setup.
This happens on my Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS.
I do not see this on a RedHat 7.2.
My X11 link has ~2.2ms delay.
I’ve tried both MobaXterm and Xming X servers on my Win7 PC.
Are there any 1s timeouts in the keyboard handling code for the editor and file tree windows?
