I'm just saying having the "Resolved" flag in the title is misleading. The workaround only helps when Komodo is already running, and the original question is related to the huge startup delay caused by this bug.
So here is the original problem, and the steps to reproduce it:
- Start a vpn connection
- Open Komodo
- Use the "Open Remote Directory" feature to load a filesystem from a remote server accessible on the vpn you just connected to
- Open a file from this remote directory
- Close Komodo
- Disconnect vpn
- Open Komodo again
At this point you are going to experience a long delay before anything is drawn to the screen. Nothing signals Komodo has even launched for minutes, which is unacceptable in my humble software developer opinion, and should be considered as a usability bug at minimum.
I'm not asking you to implement async loading, but to treat the sideeffects of not having it. An indicator of some kind, maybe a progress bar could be enough to let the user know Komodo is working, or waiting, or doing something that is blocking.
