Freezes on UNC path

#1 Post by BGM » 10.08.2011, 15:19

Beta 548 seems to freeze while accessing a UNC path to a Windows Server. It isn't hanging, it's just taking a very long time to connect. I know old FC would connect to the same path in a heartbeat.

Wow, this sure is slow. It takes about a minute for FC to resolve the location of the network address. It will change folders, but it hangs there.

Hello! Thanks for the update. I tried it out with the new version and it still freezes. It takes around a minute for it to realize itself. Doesn't seem any different than the previous version.

On my PC, new version 551 simply does nothing with a network drive (i.e. typing \\server does nothing); previous version was slow, as other users noticed.

Salvete! Okay, I had a network folder open in my active pane, and I clicked the tree button (mistake!) FCXE (558) froze, and came back to itself several minutes later. FC is slow when I navigate up and down network folders too, by double-clicking in the white area. However, if I have a network folder location in my "favourites", it jumps to it instantly! Also, the forward and back buttons work instantly too. It also works instantly if I go to a network folder from one of the buttons or menus in my favourite toolbars. But if I type the path into the address bar, or navigate by double-clicking, sometimes it hangs forever and a day.

Arrrgh! I changed tabs (leaving my network dir tree open), and changed windows, then came back to FCXE, clicked on that network tab with the tree and - the tree has to resolve itself again - another five minutes!

Aaah! I see something. Okay, to prevent closing the tree with its displayed network folder in one panel, I opened a local folder in the other panel. Now when I turned the tree on for that panel, it showed, but it also CHANGED the tree in the other panel to the default \\My Computer tree; now it is trying to reload the tree for the network folder open in its tab. That will take another 5 minutes.

I have "a tree for each tab", and "a tree for each panel" options set.

If you agree, I could build a profile version for getting more info - what is slow.

Marek, I know you sent me a debug version for 552 - which I still have - would you like me to try with that? Is that the same as a profile version?

No, with the profile version I can see exactly what is slow - I hope :).
I could send you such version in the next days.

Marek, I'm game if you are. What is a profile version? If you have TeamViewer, we can do a remote desktop session, I don't mind.

Maybe there could be some key command, such as pushing {escape} that would exit the current thread in case FC is not reacting to the last given command?
