Description Frank Reininghaus 2014-04-26 11:05:36 UTC
The problem is that the clipboard data is being re-parsed not only if the clipboard contents change, but also if the selection in the current view changes. I'll post a possible fix soon.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a Dolphin window, press "Down" and "Up" a few times to change the current item.
2. Open a second Dolphin window, go to a folder with many files, press Ctrl+A and Ctrl+C to copy them.
3. Switch to the first Dolphin window, press "Down" and "Up", and note that it works much slower than in step 1.

Update the "Paste" action only if it is necessary

Updating this action is only required if the clipboard contents change,
or if the "is writable" state of the current location changes. In all
other cases, an update of this action should be prevented because it
can be very expensive if many files are in the clipboard.

In particular, the update when the selection changes could make
changing the current item in the view very slow.
