new-search-delay: preference variable
Default value: 250
In commands that present a list of choices and automatically search
through the list when you type text, Epsilon uses this variable to
determine how long a delay must transpire between keystrokes to signal
the start of new search text. The delay is in .01 second units. For
example, if you type "c", then immediately "o", Epsilon will move
to the first entry in the list that starts with "co". But if you
pause for more than new-search-delay before
typing "o", Epsilon begins a new search string and goes to the first
entry that starts with "o".
Currently only the edit-variables command does this kind of
