Oops, I see there's indeed code that's waiting up to 0.1 seconds every second,
even when there's no traffic from the IDE.  So your time estimates are

I've fixed that for 3.0 beta2, although this code is fairly complex,
so please let us know if you still see the jumping when 3.0 beta2 is out.

Thanks for the bug report!
