I'm new here. Just started using TextMate, and I have a problem where it is freezing for up to minutes at a time.
I’ve been using it to work from home. Whereas in the office we use Microsoft Developer Studio (on Windows), that happens to be a bastard of a slug of a text editor over a Remote Desktop connection, so I have connected to my Windows file share over SMB over my VPN, and set up a TextMate ‘project’ with all my files. (I compile remotely, over the remote desktop connection, or via Ssh.)
Now TextMate is a lovely editor, and it didn’t take much effort to have it syntax-highlighting C# code. Only one problem with the otherwise (almost) perfect setup: when I have the project loaded into TextMate (600-odd files), when I change focus to another application, then focus again on TextMate, TextMate hangs for at least 20 seconds. I presume that this is something to do with it checking the files, because a local project doesn't seem to have this problem.
Potentially it’s some kind of network timeout (though I checked my various firewalls to see if some bits of the windows file sharing were being blocked, and that doesn’t seem to be the case).
I know that SMB is a dog over a remote connection (I'm on 2Mbps ADSL, and my office is 512kbps, I think), but this is almost unworkable, especially when it decides to go slow and takes 90 seconds rather than 20 (it's somewhat unpredictable. I assume it’s dependant on network conditions).
Does anybody have any ideas? Or should I report it as a bug? (Even if it is a network problem, TextMate could presumably check the files in the background, or at least provide progress feedback.) Has anyone else had this problem?
