just a guess....
canonical input buffer size?
most shells nominally run in canonical mode,
vim(1) nominally does not.
you should be able to check (prove?) this theory by
putting the terminal into a raw mode, running cat(1),
pasteing, and seeing if anything is lost. if stuff
is lost, I am probably wrong; otherwise, the theory
is worth considering (and it has nothing to do with
with X11 at all).
