Program locks on "Committing changes" window when using any tool or selecting the image

Recommended Posts

So I was going to use Paint.NET for redrawing a game sprite and pasted the old sprite in but when deselecting or trying to crop the image or using any tool resulted in it opening the "Committing changes" window and locking at 70% progress, with no way to cancel or close the program or use any tools and the only thing I could do was end the program in task manager.

Okay I'm going to try and fix this for 4.2.13, which I'm hoping to release next week.

 

I've had a few scattered reports of something like this happening, and it seems to be some buggy error handling in the multithreaded saving and loading of the history files. Running out of disk space is definitely a way for this to happen, but I'm wondering why it's hanging for you. Might also be a bug in the threading code and it's just a deadlock (which manifests as a "live lock" for the UI).
