System: Ubuntu 9.04 x64
Eclipse Version: 3.5 (also happened in 3.4)
PyDev version: 188.8.131.5243
When there is a line that just has a parenthesis, or parenthesis and a colon, the code formatter adds extra whitespace on save.
After several saves, the line gets extremely long and actually has caused eclipse to freeze up (not sure why but that is a separate issue).
You can see it happen if you just have a line like:
tmp = (
and hit save. It will then look like
tmp = (
And each save the line will get longer.
Took me forever to figure out why eclipse was getting so slow and eventually dying. Actually a lot of text editors I found out have problems with really really long lines...thank goodness for vim...haha. This isn't new with this version of PyDev, I just haven't reported it until now...
