Hi Nick,

no mystery. But a possible DoS vector and in the end just an example that
demangling may take longer as expected (and possibly necessary).

Smaller and 'real-world' input may have the same issue just on a much smaller
scale - so I wonder if this an 'easy-to-fix' code flaw or an 'fixed' design

Such a CPU hog also prevents proper fuzzing, thus it prevents finding other

You sound like this is a well-known behavior of the demangler and nothing can
be done. If that is the case, then sorry for not knowing. Feel free to close
the issue :-)
