In retrospect, I should have created the file some other way, but still..

lines)
- (mintty 2.9.0 window already open) vi /tmp/hosts

data is still scrolling by & it's not even up to 100K lines yet :(

Is there some way to make a paste operation faster in mintty (or vim
or whatever the slowpoke is)?
There's a utility called getclip which put the clipboard onto stdout.
Direct that into a file and you should get the same result, excluding
Vim's indentation.  Probably doesn't use the tty in anyway.
Is getclip different from
   cat > /tmp/hosts
   <right-click to paste in the 1M lines>
Of course it is, it goes through the terminal and the pty. Both are shortcut if you copy from /dev/clipboard, using either cat or cp.
