Even if this is not a official support channel i really think they should use it like most other software developers do with similar kind of forums. There is often a lot of feedback posted in a forum that will never reach the developers in any other way. I won't repeat myself by sending this info again using another channel, but i'm sure someone will eventually.
I don't think that is a reasonable expectation since they explicitly state the opposite:
Welcome to the IDM Forum. This forum is meant as a user-to-user support mechanism where users can share knowledge and tips for all IDM software.
Since these forums are user-to-user based, IDM does not regularly read or reply to the posts in this forum. For problem reports, suggestions, or feature requests, you must email us directly. Our trained technical support staff answers most inquiries within 30 minutes.
It is very easy to send them an e-mail.
Regardless, it sounds like you're running the current version of UEM. I can confirm a similar issue. If I start typing in an empty file, just type "aslkdfjalksdfj" repeatedly and as fast as can, out to 180 characters, then stop typing, it will take UEM about 4 seconds to catch up with me.
Similar problem when copying a large buffer. I put in a line with 420 characters, did a copy+paste, did Command+A, Command+C, Command+V a few times. After the clipboard had two thousand lines I started getting the beach ball on the paste.
After I'd pasted in about 65 thousand lines, I did a Command+A to select all the text and then pressed the delete key. I got the beach ball for almost a minute and when UEM returned it did not delete the text. I have not been able to duplicate this, though. Every attempt to repeat has worked as expected so I'm not sure what happened here.
This is on a newer Mac Pro with UEM, mail and Firefox running in the foreground. In the typing and pasting cases there was no more than 4% CPU or any significant disk I/O. When I did the delete, the UEM thread went to 100% CPU and disk usage crept up to 14 I/O per second.
