P2D2::Sudden CPU runaway

Thomas Traub
created an issue

MacHg: 0.9.23, 0bf1902f53e5 OSX: 10.6.7, 10J869

MacHg suddenly took all processor power, shortly after I had manipulated the file structure in the Finder.

Similar to issue 196, but a different situation : Yesterday I had initialized a new repo, since then I was working in it, but I did not use MacHg, just playing around with a few files. MacHg was running untouched, hidden (Cmd-H), with the project file open, holding several repos.

This morning I continued to work with the files. When I had finished, I moved some of the files (via Finder) into another freshly created folder outside of the current repo, but still within the scope of the project file. Simultaneously: my backup kicked in (TimeMachine with TimeCapsule) my MacBook's fans go wild

I open the console and find thousands of these lines :

    I would just like to confirm I am having this problem quite a lot. I am seeing the same behaviour, also on a MacBook. I also noticed it because the fans ramped up to full speed in order to try to cool the system under full utilization.
