For me (Debian sid, 800mhz Athlon, 2.4.13, qtella compiled from source, KDE2.2.2) soon after I start the program and start either switching tabs or reordering the fields within a tab, qtella decides to grab as much of my CPU as possible and sits there inert until I kill it. XKill kills the window, but not the CPU crunching process itself, I need to kill the qtella process explicitly. Memory doesn't seem to be a problem, ertainly not to the extent CPU cycles are, but I can't keep as close an eye on that.

    Don't see this here on Red Hat Linux 7.2 (Qt 2.3.1).

    Have you tried different compiler optimization settings yet?

    No. I'v never fiddled with compile options before and wouldn't know what to try. I'd be happy to try any suggestions, however.

    I noticed that qtella was still set to use an old download directory for some reason, which no longer existed. Fixing this setting removed the buggy behaviour, so perhaps it is something with writing to the disk?

    Can't reproduce this here. Can you come up with a
    reproducible test case?

    If you've built from source, try configuring the source code
    with: CXXFLAGS="-O" ./configure --enable-debug
