Slowdown if filesystem contains links to unreachable places
If I run "meld file1 file2" the meld for some reason is looking through the filesystem. It finds that I have somewhere a folder with mounted network drive which is currently unavailable, and of course it hangs there for some time. Then finds another such folder and hangs again, and it takes about a minute.
In meld 3.20.2 it was like this BEFORE opening the file comparison (so I had to wait a minute for comparison to open); in latest 3.21.1 that I run without installing it is AFTER the comparison window is closed (program does not finish but only after a minute).
I also see some messages like this in console:
(org.gnome.Meld:2848023): Gtk-WARNING **: 10:09:48.197: Failed to measure available space: Error getting filesystem info for /path-to-var-lib-docker/overlay2/8cd760c002c717b4a712d0b33d994d10e5bc9c978f3a2a16e08fab4e6694fb43/merged: Permission denied
Why does it happen at all? Save the time and do not crawl the disk :-) Maybe it is done by the 'file selector' dropdown for some reason?
