Description of problem:
(apologies if this is mis-filed. gnome-search-tool doesn't appear
anywhere in bugzilla)
I recently had an issue with corrupted user accounts and I decided to
try a "search and destroy" of my entire disk to find and kill any
remnants of a broken account.
As an experiment, I tried using the desktop search tool. Knowing that
many of my files were root-only I launched the search tool from sudo.
Then I did a big content search. Well, my server is still new and
there aren't *that* many file on it. But 30 minutes later it acts
like it's still searching. I am pretty sure it's just hung.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. from terminal, sudo gnome-search-tool
2. leave filename entry blank
3. change search path to "/"
4. show more options
5. add an option "contains the text"
6. enter search string you know will exist (e.g. your username will
appear in a few /etc/ files)
7. click "find"
Actual Results: 30 minutes later it was still searching and not a
Expected Results: (a) slow but steady trickle of "hits" (e.g. from
(b) completion sooner than this
(c) if it really is this slow, how about a progress bar?
It seem to work fine in rawhide.
