I have been able to duplicate the problem, and have added it to BugZilla. Never noticed it before, as I always use CygnusEd 5.

Thank you very much Chris

I can duplicate this freeze simply by Copying a big file (128kB doc file from SDK) and Pasting it into NotePad. Instant lockup.

I had a look at the code, but it uses ARexx to execute every menu command (including Cut/Copy/Paste), and I can't follow it. It looks like a job for a NotePad expert.
cheers

Is this true for 4.0 final NotePad? Since that version (rather 52.1) works (just wait for maybe 1 second per 100 kB).

I tracked it down to a bug in texteditor.gadget.
