I have these in my .vimrc:

set notimeout
nnoremap <leader>n :set rnu!<CR>
nnoremap <leader>h :<C-u>call Toggle_colorcolumn()<CR>

<leader>n works instantly; <leader>h waits until I press Return or Escape key. Why does vim wait? I want it to take effect immediately.

This is the function definition just in case the problem is there:

function Toggle_colorcolumn()
    if &colorcolumn != 80
        exec('set colorcolumn=80')
        exec('set colorcolumn=0')

    Welcome to Vi and Vim! Just FYI, your code can just use set colorcolumn=80 directly. It’s an ex command.

I had another binding that <leader>h was a prefix and I had forgotten about; it was <leader>html. Removing it solved the problem.
