mode, and is not part of the command that inserts multiple lines.
Note that any text inserted as part of the O or o command gets inserted
multiple times, as well. So that 5OHello<esc> will insert the line
«Hello» five times.
The delay between the <esc> and inserting the repetitions of the text
only occurs in terminal vim, not gvim or macvim. It is a consequence of
the keyboard handling. Terminal vim must wait a little bit to see if
the <esc> is part of a terminal escape sequence for keys like the arrow
keys or function keys.
