Description Martin L ü c h e m 2009-12-12 14:41:08 UTC
Version:           4.3.2 (KDE 4.3.2) (using 4.3.2 (KDE 4.3.2), Debian packages)
Compiler:          cc
OS:                Linux (x86_64) release 2.6.30-2-amd64

When I select a file and try to use "File -> send file" it will not attach the selected file but the whole folder as a ZIP file.

Ugh, confirmed. I just selected one file on my home dir and konqueror "freezed". It started to create one big zip file of my home dir.
Comment 2 Tommi Tervo 2009-12-12 18:46:41 UTC
I stared a bit KonqMainWindow::slotSendFile function and I'm lost. I don't understand how it is designed to get the selected file information.

Hey this is really a severe problem. When you are used to this function you forget about the bug and the result could be: the whole system freezes!!

Select a file out of a folder full of large files (e.g. scans), try to send them. => FREEZE!!! Why? Well if the folder is really big, the system will create a very big ZIP-File, that will be stored in the KDE-Temp folder, what usually is located in /tmp. Assume you have 10GB space reserved for the partition / this may result in an overflow. In my case the system created a file of 3/4 GB:

-rw-r--r-- 1 mhl mhl 735M 21. Dez 16:33 Scans.zip

Then you have to kill KMail but imagine what KMail does! It will try to recover the mail and the enormous big attachement. Once more the same situation!

So do you habe a workaround for that? Can you increase the priority on this?

Regards, Martin
