This started when emacs would freeze every time I opened a file that had some ascii art text in the comment. I realized that by removing the comment the issue cleared up. I then went through all removed one character type at a time. Turns out that underscores are the culprit here.

To repro: hold down the "_" key. after a few have printed you should see things slow down, and then halt. For me, it is difficult to get past 15 or so on my high end macbook pro.
