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):
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.
