#133 LaTeX-plugin interferes with spell checker plugin


LaTeX plugin 0.2 on Ubuntu 10.04, TexLive 2009
When working in a LaTeX document automatic spellchecking with the built-in spell checker of gedit is very slow.

I would like to use the native spell checker of gedit, not the one which comes with the LaTeX plugin, as the former is able to show misspelled words while typing. Also it seems to be aware of LaTeX syntax, so it's not a bad choice. While it works just fine in a plain text file, there seems to be some trouble when gedit is in LaTeX mode. When typing CPU usage explodes (on an arguably not very beefy netbook) and display of the typed in characters becomes sluggish and erratic. E.g. while holding down a key normal behavior would be to have an ever growing row of the same character. In the situation described here I only see the first character until I release the key. then all characters are displayed at once. Similar behavior when using delete which makes deleting something rather hit and miss...
