listing a large directory in the Terminal brings system to a crawl
|Reported by:||stippi||Owned by:||axeld|
|Has a Patch:||no||Platform:||All|
steps to reproduce:
mountvolume YourPrimaryBeOSVolume cd /YourPrimaryBeOSVolume/home/mail/in ls -l
Their will first be much disk activity without anything being listed yet, then the contents will slowly be displayed, but the system is unresponsive already. It keeps going but everything will slow to pretty much a complete stop. I tried killing Terminal via the Team Monitor, which failed. The Team Monitor just went away, then the mouse cursor wouldn't move anymore, but I could still see the clock updating in Deskbar. Then I purposfully entered KDL (which relaxed the CPU fan) and rebooted the system from there.
100% reproducable. I have 1850 mails in that folder.
