GUI freezes when staging multiple files

Reported by Joe Harris | February 23rd, 2009 @ 12:01 PM

Whenever I stage multiple files the GUI freezes (beachball of doom).

Single files do not cause this problem, but it does happen with both right-click stage and drag and drop.

The stage itself executes correctly and the files all show as being staged when the GUI is restarted.

Thanks, Joe

    Just wanted to note that I'm running GitX 0.6.1, OSX 10.5.6, git 1.6.1.2.

    Hm, I just tested it with two really simple files, one new and one changed.

    I tried * Selecting both files and dragging/dropping them to/from stage/unstage-list. * Selecting both files and right-click staging/unstaging them

    Both operations worked fine. Are you sure it's not one of the files that has some special content which might explain this behaviour? As usual one of the following would be welcome, if possible:

    1. The repo which causes this problem
    2. A diff of the files which cause this problem
    3. A screenshot showing the relevant files/diffs

    • State changed from “new” to “hold”

    My guess would be that this is because you have a lot of untracked files? If not, please reopen this ticket

    I have this problem and it happens consistently when staging multiple files on two separate machines running 10.5.6 and git 1.6.0.6. The app simply hangs.

    Dear All! Johannes has advised the correct way of this cool essay problem. You guys must try this and I am sure the issue will be resolved. As I have resolved mine one with this procedure as well and found it convenient.
