Details

STR (until bug 825061 is fixed)
 (1) Go to wifi screen in FTE
 (2) Tap "show password"
 (3) Focus input box and quickly enter a password

Initial key feedback is very laggy, presumably while the suggestion engine is loading.  After that, there's a sudden flood of suggestions, presumably when some key queue is flushed.

One way to fix this is to throttle the suggestions, which I suggested when the code was originally written.  Another way is to ignore character streams that are too old and just wait for the next word.

Suggestions have been disabled for the WiFi password input box from FTE by bug 825061, is this bug still valid?
