Hi Stefan,

First of all, thank you for looking into this.

No, it does not help.

You are right.

I would like to add that C++ template seems to be a specific problem
in CC Mode as shown by the attached C++ program file.

Using `emacs -Q' with your patch to visit the attached file locally,
M-> C-u 10 C-p C-u 6 M-f DEL 10 is not sluggish at all when editing a
non template.  After that, let's edit a template: M-< C-v C-v C-v C-v
C-v C-u 4 M-f DEL is very sluggish.  After that, typing 10 is also
very sluggish.
