Yes, thanks. That fixes the slow down for me.

Yes.  This isn't good.

Thanks for taking the trouble to report this, and thanks for researching
the cause.

I think this bug is a duplicate of bug #30367, for which I've just
committed commit 16559146f9db1b36d5e8b6c92edb5bb36fafdb85 to savannah.
(Thanks for giving me a nudge, here.)

Bear in mind that in such an unusual source file (with a ~17,500 line
array initialisation), CC Mode is going to take some time to analyse
things.  But taking nearly a minute to draw a screen is outside the
bounds of acceptability.
