Using the supplied instructions I can't reproduce the bug.

Any more hints?

Ah, yes I can reproduce it now. You have to open the text file by clicking on it, and not after opening gedit.

What also happens is if you move a window the busy cursor halts. But this is just temporary, opening a new window causes it to start up again. So only way to really stop is too log out.
