there were some small conflicts in follow up patches, I pushed

We can't display the UI box saying that we are slow in reader
thread. That will make perf top even slower and user even more
angry ;-)

Moving the UI box message out of the reader thread into UI thread
and changing it into helpline, so there's no 'press any key'
necessary.
