This is not an intentional change, I think the changes made to speed up
block editing has caused this. I'll need to have a look at why this is,
and have a more general look the new block edit for the reason below.

The changes do speed up block editing a large block with few other texts
loaded but result in a delay when there are many texts loaded and you
happen to block edit in a text that's near the bottom of the flexheap.
