Perhaps it's possible to stop text from scrolling when a player is active on single-core platforms such as the Pi1 that are more sensitive to GUI updates.

CPU usage very high when horizontal text scroll happen.
To reproduce, create an empty folder, name it with a long character string or/and rename a music/video file with a long string.

Compare CPU usage between no scrolling and a scrolling name with debug or ssh/top

With my RPi1-512 overclocked at 1000 I get:
Low: 15-20%
When I play HD multichannel music I get drops.

I still can't play some files, a lot of drops due to scrolling text.
Is there any improvement in the new build, fix or workaround?
For you information, still the same issue with OpenELEC K* build #1216
With ssh, top, nothing playing:
No scroll text, CPU ~ 10-15%
With scroll, CPU ~75-95% .... and drops when playing :-(
Config, audio player only:
2T HDD <USB> RPi2/Kodi <HDMI> Denon AVR-2313 <HDMI> LG TV 55UF860V
