How reproducible:

Actual results:
100% CPU usage on one core after step 3. Yelp process will never exit until you manually kill it or logout/reboot.

Comment 1 Christian Stadelmann 2016-02-06 17:19:50 EST
Upstream bug report states that this issue is fixed in 3.18.x, but Fedora is still shipping 3.17.2 due to the workaround chosen for bug #1276226. Once its upstream pendant https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=753443 is fixed, yelp can be updated to 3.18.x or 3.20.x and this issue will be gone.
Comment 2 Christian Stadelmann 2016-08-29 03:54:01 EDT
This issue is fixed upstream and landed in 3.20.x and newer.
