Sometimes, while editing complex regular expressions one can accidentally change the current regular expression in such a way that the pattern becomes infinately recursive. When this happens, Kodos locks up for a very long time.

What would be nice is if Kodos could do the parsing in some background thread, thereby leaving the UI responsive. Another way to make this bug less painful would be if you could manually turn on and off automatic matching.
