Description stuart_k_rogers 2005-09-26 19:32:26 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050720 Fedora/1.0.6-1.1.fc3 Firefox/1.0.6

Description of problem:
On numerous occasions during past weeks, I've had to kill nautilus because it transitioned into a state where it bogged down the system.  The "top" utility showed it was using most of the CPU.  I recently narrowed the events leading up to this to something specific.  It occurs when I resize a nautilus window of image previews using the lower-right corner to drag the frame.  On the other hand, if I drag only the right edge and the bottom edge separately instead of using the corner to drag, this problem does not occur.

I would guess that the code that reorganizes the preview image layouts within the window is getting confused and stuck in some kind of loop.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create new folder with 12 bmp files.
2. Open folder.
3. Drag lower right corner to expand window to fill full screen width (1280)

Actual Results:  The window resized OK, but the system became sluggish.  Found other nautilus windows unresponsive.

Expected Results:  Resize without using all of CPU.

Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!
