As discussed earlier, I think the right fix is to display the buffer
right away and then fill it in the background.

Problem with it, is that currently we do "fill the buffer with
half-processed text; finish formatting; display", so if we only move the
"display" part, the user will see (temporarily) the half-processed text.
