|Subject||[greenstone-users] Stall in Build Collection|
A file "incl.item" that was part of a large directory tree successfully gathered using GLI caused a stall during the Build Collection phase. This file happened to be empty.
The stall is characterized by 100% CPU usage. The last line in the progress window is "The file Library/incl.item is being processed by PagedImgPlug."
It seems to me that Greenstone should be tolerant of zero-length files, since their existence conveys information. (For the time being and in the collection of interest, I can delete all such files.)
