Hi All, new user on the RStudio community but have been a long-time user of the program.
Starting a few days ago, I have been getting this issue that has been driving me absolutely crazy with the Rstudio console. I have no idea why it is happening, and the only way I've been able to 'fix' it is by ctrl+alt+del and then restarting.
Basically, I will work in RStudio and at some point the console seems to get stuck. As in, the cursor disappears and nothing I input into the console will go through. I can no longer save scripts, click through menu options, or even exit the program by x'ing out of the top right button.
It's like the console is stuck in a loop, but I have no loop in the current script I'm writing. There also no stop sign in the top right of the console to signify it's running logic. Task manager shows it's eating about about 25% of my cpu which seems high but it's not like its topping out or anything.
The timing of this seems completely random. Sometimes I can work on this script for an hour, sometimes for 5 minutes.
It seems like an internet connection could be involved. When I disconnect my ethernet cord I immediately get an "Error: Unable to establish connection with R session" error. This resets the console cursor, but as soon as I type another command the problem immediately reappears. Here's a screenshot to give an idea of what's happening.
As a background. I have the most recent version of R and RStudio. I've also tried this with the lastest RStudio preview and get the same issue. I've tried across two computers and the issue arises with both.
What would account for this type of behavior? I've been using R on and off for the better part of a decade and never had this issue before.
