But that is what is supposed to happen.  When you press Enter, shell-mode
takes all the stuff between the point where you pressed Enter and the end of
output, and submits that to the shell.  Since that's a lot of text, it could
take a long time to process.

So this is a not Emac's bug?
But  sometime I need to press Enter(while text is generate) because I , e.g.
want to insert some new text (e.g. notes) between existing text.
