      Description

      During copy&paste and editing strings of the following format Qt Creator gets unresponsive for several seconds:

      DEFINES += APP_A=\\\"test1\\\"
      DEFINES += APP_B=\\\"test2\\\"
      DEFINES += APP_C=\\\"test3\\\"
      DEFINES += APP_D=\\\"https://www.orf.at/news\\\"
      

      Steps to reproduce:

      1. Create a new Qt Project.
      2. Add the code from above to the *.pro file.
      3. Clear the clipboard. Then copy the code from the pro file and insert it somewhere else.
      4. Qt Creator hangs.

      Scenario 2:

      1. Create a new Qt Project.
      2. Add the code from above to the *.pro file.
      3. Edit the code in the pro file. Qt Creator randomly hangs, especially when editing the "https://www.orf.at/news" part.
