KDevelop 5 too slow?

I can reproduce at least some of the slowness using a template
(Qt/C++) project from KDevelop.

Simply opening main.cpp:

int main(int argc, char *argv[])
    QApplication app(argc, argv);
    testkdev5 w;

    return app.exec();

and changing "app" definition (like typing "2" after it so it becomes app2)
takes about 3-4 seconds to re-parse and re-highlight.

It all becomes a lot slower with 2 other projects I have (one quite small
and one large, with the parser sometimes "giving up?" - not highlighting

Should I file a bug report?
