Description Eskil Bylund 2006-03-11 10:42:56 UTC
Description of problem:
The image thumbnailer in nautilus will when thumbnailing certain animated gif
files (in my case its recordings made using byzanz), use more and more memory
until the machine goes down.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
On the larger files it happens every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a recording using byzanz.
2. Open the directory containing the file using nautilus.
Actual results:
Nautilus starts using more and more memory.

Expected results:
Nautilus thumbnails the image.

Can you attach one of the offending gifs ?

Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2006-03-14 13:55:29 UTC
The problem here is that the nautilus thumbnnailer uses
gdk_pixbuf_new_from_file(), which does not handle gif animations in 
an optimal way. It first loads the entire animation, and then only
uses the first frame. Of course, it would be much nicer to only
load first frame...

This should be fixed now, with the latest gtk2 package.
