Long gifs load very slowly

  • Opera 28.0 on Debian unstable. Gifs start loading fine, but after a few second there's a noticeable slowdown which gets worse over time. The slowdown is not limited to the gif itself, but affects everything on the tab. This seems suspiciously like some linear-time operation happening every time a small bit of data is received from the network, perhaps as small as one byte. But no sane programmer would actually do something like that, right?
