SSMS 2012 is slow and pauses/hangs when code is commented out in large procedure.
And I am tired of and frustrated with this issue. Others have suggested that this is a problem and in fact it is.

I can make it happen any time.

SSMS has been unnecessarily slow in fringe cases for years - e.g. agent history timing out when an equivalent select on the msdm sysjobhistory* responds in seconds... Or try editing around a script using a virtual table built old-style using union all and having thousands of rows - freezes every other keystroke... Or try using the "new" activity monitor compared to querying dm views or or or... This should not detract from the fact that it is mostly an admirably potent and reliable freeware tool.

Hi!, thanks for writing in to Microsoft.

We took a look at this bug and are unable to reproduce it in SSMS 2012 RTM. We followed your repro steps and attached the databases, opened the script file and typed the comment '/*' and moved around as you noted. SSMS and IntelliSense does not freeze and the CPU and memory consumption does not increase. We are closing this bug as ‘no repro’.
