neovide When guifont is set Neovide becomes slow and unstable

Describe the bug If I don't set guifont in my init.lua then the text in neovide is too small. After reading #3, I added vim.opt.guifont = 'Consolas:h32' to my init.lua. This however causes Neovide to become very slow and occasionally crash.

To Reproduce Steps to reproduce the behavior:

  1. Be on archlinux running the sway window manager
  2. Install neovide like so paru -S neovide-git
  3. Add vim.opt.guifont = 'Consolas:h32' to the init.lua
  4. Open neovide
  5. Experience slowness, maybe even a crash, lack of visual effects

Expected behavior Normal neovide speed and visuals but with a larger font

Screen record normal good performance without guifont set guifont set, degraded performance, crashes randomly
