I experience a strange, difficult-to-reproduce issue where code entered at the console occasionally takes a long time to be evaluated. For example
> 1 <enter> would take about a minute. I notice it is more likely to happen after I have tried to query the file system, e.g.
dir(path = "~/some-dir-with-lots-of-files/<tab>"). Neither other programs, nor other parts of RStudio freeze or are even slower (I can access the menus just fine). The icon at the top right of the console is generally not illuminated during the lengthy delay.
I consulted the log files
rsession-hugh.log but none had entries that were concurrent with this pause.
When I hit
Request Log, I see a large blue stripe with labelled
console_input, but couldn’t see anything more than what I’ve described (I can’t copy it).
Is this a known issue. If a fix is warranted, what should I do to diagnose it in order to improve RStudio in future versions?
RStudio Version 1.1.419 on Windows 10
