I'm trying to figure out why shotwell freezes for me. I can't discern a pattern. It can happen after a few minutes or several hours.

I've tried various versions. For a while I was using the basic install from the Debian repos but that does it too. At the moment I'm using 0.30.4.

I've traditionally started shotwell using a wrapper script but I don't know how relevant this is now. Here it is:

   dougie@office:~$ cat bin/startshotwell
   #!/bin/bash

   export SHOTWELL_LOG=1
   /home/dougie/shotwell-0.30.4/build/src/shotwell &

   tail -f $LOGFILE /home/dougie/.cache/shotwell/shotwell.log

I have a large photo collection. About 107K jpegs. I keep videos separate. There may be some debris in my images folder but I try to ensure that it's just jpegs.

When shotwell freezes there is no activity in the terminal window where I run the wrapper.

Is there a way I could diagnose this better?

Dougie
