You can see the total samples per thread broken up down into the call chain.
..so in the main thread the time seems to be somewhat evenly divided between
draw_glyphs, draw_window_fringes, etc, all of which seem to be blocking
in _CGSSynchronizeWindowBackingStore.

Can anyone try to repro this?  (basically open a large buffer, subdivide a
frame into quite a few windows, and then vigorously shake a horizontal
divider for a bit.  In my case I usually get a slow refresh after 5-15 seconds).
It can happen in other cases too such as window resizes but this seems
to be the easiest way to trigger it.
I’m using a pretty vanilla OSX Mavericks install on a retina MBP; curious
if others are seeing this..
