    Thumbs down xditview '.' hangs taking 90% CPU

    Command:

    Code:
    xditview '.'
    Result:

    xditview shows a window with control outlines but the controls do not get painted. Then it stops responding and takes 90% CPU.

    Expected:
    A directory listing (try { xedit '.'; })

    Default Re: xditview '.' hangs taking 90% CPU

    man xditview doesn't show me that i should expect a directory listing
    resulting from

    Code:
    xditview '.'
    it does tell me what to expect from both of these:

    Code:
    xditview -
    xditview |
    that is to say: i'm not sure we should expect the results of these two
    commands to be the same (directory listing):

    Code:
    xditview '.'
    xedit '.'
    but, i'm guessing and have neither googled nor searched bugzilla to
    see if your discovery is either in the bug hopper or known by others
    to be a problem...

    @OP: What did you expect xditview . to do? Do you know what ditroff format is?

    However I regard this as a bug of xditview not checking that the input file is a file and not a directory.
