Description of problem:
When using Nautilus to view files I noticed that opening /dev from
Nautilus's "Tree View" causes the file manager to hang at 100% cpu
utilization. Viewing the same directoy by double clicking the directory ICON
merely causes Nautilus that there are too many files and that some will not be
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.Click on Tree view
3.Point treeview to /dev
Actual Results: Application hangs at full cpu utlization until killed.
Expected Results: Display the directory without error.
Last time I tried this, it did recover if you waited long enough... it was just
really really slow. I haven't tried with latest though.
The problem occurs when expanding the tree view for /dev, not simply clicking on /dev in
the tree view.
And, it does come back eventually like Havoc says.
Hmm, I got it to hang forever, the second time I tried it.
I can't get it do hang at all with the recent rawhide nautilus. Can you repeat
this with nautilus 2.2.5?
I tried this with the Nautilus in 9.0.93 (2.2.4-4). I opened the side pane,
selected "tree" from the pulldown, and clicked on dev. I also tried navigating
up to / and down to /dev in the main pane. Both actions worked normally.
Nautilus took <5 seconds to open all of /dev (~7500 items)
The 2.3.8 in now should be even faster, so I'm closing this.
Confirming 2.3.8-1 is indeed MUCH faster.
