I'd like to confirm the reported bug, it has hit me quite often.
One of my most frequently used zim books with collected public knowledge,
attachments and WEB-links has this footprint:
After removing the related .zim/* the index is reorganized and the
notebook is usable again. I love this robustness and the separation between
data and management in .zim dir (index, state etc). Thanks a lot, Jaap (!!)
For the tasklist the index has to be rebuilt, which takes around 4 minutes
and more, giving a performance of 5 files per second. The names of processed
files are displayed on the run, it feels quite slow.
System: Ubuntu 14.04; x86_64, 2 CPU(s), 3 GHz, 8 GiB memory.
The zim book is rsync'ed to and from a removable media daily, to be used at
several places, leaving the .zim management directory out.
So far I've ignored the problem, assuming the cause in .zim dir being out of
sync. But in the middle of the work the effect may happen also, which does
not fit with the assumption.
Zim Versions in use, without difference in this aspect:
