Thunar freeze+100% CPU when opening new window

Postby ^rooker » Wed Jan 11, 2017 8:34 pm

On a good old, stable-running Xubuntu 12.04 (64bit) I suddenly get a very strange (and annoying) behavior of Thunar:
Whenever I open a new window it freezes for a few seconds.

CPU load goes to 100%.
ps/top/htop show it's the Thunar process:
Thunar --sm-client-id 27f4ab516-b65f-488e-9afa-c20bee3f40d4 --daemon

No updates were done on this machine. No changes I am aware of (and I know this machine).
Hm... :?

It was a bad folder with lots-and-lots-of-files in "~/Templates".
I realized that when I right-clicked to create a new file: It froze again.

So I removed the faulty Template and everything's back to normal again.
*phew* :D

Jumping out of an airplane is not a basic instinct. Neither is breathing underwater. But put the two together and you're traveling through space!
