Bug Description

We have a scaling delay parameter that depends on how long IPython has been idle. Currently it is a bit too long. We need to tweak these times and make them configurable.

+1, they were actually bugging me during lecture recently.

Quick q: do we have similar scaling delays for qt? I couldn't find
any, but I'm not sure right now why...

Take care,

Nope, the only reason we have to do this for wx is that wx does not
have the ability to trigger events when a file descriptor
gets a read/write event. Qt can do that and thus the eventhook runs
until the user types (that triggers stdin event).
On wx, on the other hand, we have to poll :( and hence the polling times.
