Unable to edit Spring Webflow XML files in IDEA 8.1

I've been having serious problems editing spring web flow xml files in IDEA

I'm running into 2 issues: one is where the IDE locks up for 5-10 seconds
when working in the attribute value fields for various elements and another
is where the cursor as I am typing will jump all over and create all sorts
of weird spacing.

Has anyone else run into this?

I've created 2 JIRAs for this with snapshots:

Cursor jump issue: http://www.jetbrains.net/jira/browse/IDEA-22219
Performance issue: http://www.jetbrains.net/jira/browse/IDEA-22218

Right now, our team has reverted to notepad for editing these files.
Hopefully this will be an easy fix for 8.1.1.
