the problem I'm facing is that when i try to compare files when one of the files is on my PC and the other is on another PC in my LAN.
generally it works great, but when I'm disconnected from the LAN, or the other PC is disconnected, i need to wait a very long time until the application responses again.
this is problematic when the last file i checked for difference was on another PC (which is now disconnected) and I'm starting Winmerge again (when wanting to put a new file for comparison - it is almost impossible since the GUI gets stuck looking for a file on the LAN that does not exists).
1. open winmerge and compare a file to file on another PC
2. quit winmerge
3. disconnect the other PC from LAN (a laptop is a great example...)
4. open winmerge again and click on the open button -> GUI gets stuck.
A timeout should be implemented i think...
