Description RadicalDreamer 2017-10-16 08:34:08 UTC
I have my home directory linked to a folder in a different partition:
bash: /home/rad: Is a directory

In /home/ 
ls -lh gives:
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root   root    16 Jul 20  2016 rad -> /Files/rad/

In /Files/
ls -lh gives:
drwx--x--x 90 rad users 4.0K Oct 16 04:03 rad
drwx------  2 root root   16K Jul 19  2016 lost+found

In System Settings->File Search I have "Files" listed as in "Do not search in these locations."

Date of build of baloo_file_extractor.
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 120K Oct 11 03:08 baloo_file_extractor

I see this location after freezing occurs and I switch to a different console with alt+ctrl+F2, and then back again to alt+ctrl+F1. I block group "users" internet with firewall. I have a separate group that I switch to when I want internet. In this case I used a script provided by Carnegie Mellon University to get required files for Festival program and a result the downloaded files are owned by a different group.

ls -lh
drwxr-xr-x 44 rad allowinternet 4.0K Apr 24 16:15 cmu_us_rms100

Every time I have to kill X using ctrl+alt+F2 and switch back to ctrl+alt+F1 I see cmu_us_rms100 folder listed and files in that folder in console in a wall of text.
