  • High CPU (pegs at 100%)

    I've seen a couple of other posts about similar symptoms now.

    I'm running BC 64bit 4.2.2 (build 22384) on Linux Mint 18.1 KDE (1 CPU)

    I have BC configured as the diff tool for SmartGit.

    What I just determined is that on the 1st diff, BC is fine, but if I then do a 2nd diff which opens in a 2nd tab, then BC pegs the CPU.

    Closing a tab at that point doesn't help. I have to shutdown BC, at which point a single diff is fine again.

    I just tried changing the BC setting to open new sessions in a new window instead of a tab, but the behavior didn't change, the 2nd diff (in the new window this time) still causes BC to use all available CPU.

    Thanks. I've reproduced this issue and we'll open a tracker entry to investigate.

      Excellent, that's all I wanted, well I'd like it fixed, but since you were able to reproduce it I have every confidence you'll squash it and the fix will be in an update sometime in the future.

      If you were able to give a short description of what the cause was found to be (when it's found), that would appease my developer curiosity, but I understand if that doesn't happen.

        The Linux high CPU usage when launching a second comparison from the command line bug is fixed in version 4.2.3.
