Summary0000678: Having a large skein causes massive slowdowns in the in-IDE interpreter
DescriptionWhen running my large WIP, the in-IDE game experienced incredible delays. It printed out the text fairly quickly, but then I had to sit back and wait for the command prompt to appear. This could take 10, 20, 30 seconds. It only happened when a command prompt has to be printed: if you give five commands at one prompt, it will print out the answers to all five commands without delay... and then the waiting starts.

The problem was solved by radically trimming the Skein. I suspect that having a very large skein will always create this problem (at least on my system), but this is a little hard to test right now. (I have no great desire to restart a game several hundred times to type in new strings of commands.) This also means that it is hard for me to test whether the problem appears in all games, or whether it has something to do with this specific game.

Additional info: I chose 6F95, because the menu wouldn't allow me to choose 6G60. I am using 6G60, 64-bit, on a fresh installation of Ubuntu 11.04. I had the same problem under Ubuntu 10.10.

Also, switching from Glulxe to Git has no effect. I don't think any of the options in the Preferences menu have an effect.

Confirmed. Looks like the delay is in i7_skein_draw.

Okay, I didn't have a game with a really _huge_ Skein to test it on, but I had one that was large enough that the delay was about 2 sec. per command. I managed to speed it up by about 20 times, and do the operations in idle time - so you shouldn't notice any slowdowns or lockups anymore.

If somebody could test a build from git master on a project with a gargantuan Skein, that would be a nice plus - or at least send me a copy of a game to test. But for now I'm closing the bug.

I see hardly any delay now, so I can verify the fix. I'll e-mail you my test case.
