I am using the latest st (git pull) with no changes to config (cp -piv
config.def.h config.h).

I don't know about Xft, but when I cat that file, it takes a long time
and makes st very very slow. According to htop, st uses about 100% of a
core while it cats. Even after it is done catting, st is very slow. It
takes 3 to 6 seconds for my shell prompt to display again when I just
hit enter (I've tried with both fish and mksh). Using the reset command
returns it to normal speed. Is this a bug?

I just tried with xterm and there is no slowdown.
