I don't know if this answers the question, but I've been using wxSTCs 
in my apps (there's no other way to display or edit text over 32k), and 
they seem to work just fine. One app uses an STC to load, for example, 
a 4.5 meg text file and do some searches on it. It's all very quick and 
painless. The only annoyance is the almost-but-not-quite-the-same 
commands for STCs versus wx's TextCtrls.
