Re: [Shotwell] 100% CPU consumption

This is what I see in the log file:

L 16444 2014-09-19 12:03:19 [MSG] main.vala:385: Shotwell Photo Manager 0.18.0
L 16444 2014-09-19 12:03:19 [MSG] main.vala:43: Verifying database ...
L 16444 2014-09-19 12:03:22 [WRN] DirectoryMonitor.vala:916: Skipping hidden file/directory 

And then many more of the "Skipping hidden file" warnings.  But I guess
these should be ok.

Is is possible that the database is messed up?  Can I just delete it and
have it rebuilt?  If yes, where do I find it.

Is there another way to extract information from the shotwell
process.  "shotwell --help" doesn't show a verbose flag.

Thank you!

I don't recall any reported bug similar to this.  It would probably 
help to look in the Shotwell log file (~/.cache/shotwell/shotwell.log) 
and see if there's anything suspicious there.

Hi list,

I'm a happy Shotwell user with a photo library containing around 3000
photos that I took over the last two years.  I really like Shotwell's
simplicity and straightforwardness.  However, now I encounter a 
that renders Shotwell pretty much unusable.  When I start the program
(on Ubuntu 14.04) the GUI comes up and Shotwell consumes 100% of one 
core.  Shotwell continues to keep this core busy even if I wait a long
time and the GUI is only partly responsive: I can look at pictures and
change folders but when I empty the trash, the GUI hangs.  Likewise,
it's not possible to import images from my camera (used to work).  I 
the message "Starting import" but nothing happens.

Is this a known problem?  If yes, how can I fix it?

Please let me know if you need further information.

Thank you!
