Inspecting the following will trigger the CPU loop:

| startPos aTextStream name |

aTextStream := TextStream on: (Text new: 1024).
name := 'silver | AB-com.cz'.
startPos := aTextStream position max: 1.
	nextPutAll: name; 
	applyAttribute: (TextFontReference toFont: (LogicalFont familyName: 'Source Sans Pro' pointSize: 20))
		beginningAt: startPos;
	cr; cr.
aTextStream contents.

(I thought it would take much longer to generate a small piece of code
that would reproduce the problem).
