Since performance is ok with real-time parsing but without Geanyprj
and without real-time parsing but with Geanyprj the problem must be
some kind of interaction.  Does updating the tags do something that
triggers Geanyprj in some way (eg document activation signal) which
then causes more work to be done?

Havn't used it much so far, but works ok for me at 250.  The updates
are just visible, but its not too far from the 100ms thats usually
taken as the lower limit of noticing UI delays so I think its a
reasonable compromise.
