Description Chris McMahon 2013-05-06 19:04:20 UTC
I watched a user using Chrome paste a 32400-character buffer of special characters into VE.  Chrome became unresponsive. 

This user then did that in multiple tabs and the entire computer became unresponsive.

Marking as an enhancement with normal priority (nice-to-have).
