I have (for months now) a strange problem with Blender 2.5 in the file browser. Suddenly I am unable to open or save files, and the file browser displays no files. I loose all work done up to the last time I saved. I have to quit and restart blender to be able to interact with the file system again.
I’m not sure what triggers it, but I suspect it is something to do with sorting the file browser view by date (or with blender’s generation of file previews).
I’m using trunk builds of blender on OS X 10.6.4
I have made a screen cast so you can see what is happening: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TkMEhuM96Yw
and here is the console output from that session: http://www.pasteall.org/14376
Is anyone else on mac experiencing this? Any suggestions?
