Crawling ants lockup?

Hi Chip and all:

Did anyone ever run across a 'crawling ant' lockup?

When using ContextMenus, I get this. It's not a GR, but
I have to reset the OS. It usually happens with a couple
windows open and NotePad. It usually occurs from a call to the shell and a return to editing and/or a click to ContextMenu...
oops...here come the parade of ants.

Who's causing the mishap? Intuition, ContextMenus, NotePad ? Anyway to trace this down?

Crawling ant? Well, THERE'S your problem!

Just kidding! What does 'Crawling ant' mean?

I remember seeing a bug fix for the "crawling ants" some time ago now. You'll have to wait for the next OS4 release to get the fix.

I don't use ContextMenus and I have never had such a lockup. The rest of the stuff you mentioned I use. Try avoiding CM for a while.

I think that's what it is called. Hold down the LMB on the WB and start dragging. What would you call that animation?

Anyway, I'll start a lot work: three or more windows, and NotePad and a shell route. It doesn't happen all the time; just a certain condition triggers it.

@ SSolie,

Something triggers it. In the interest of OS4 science,
I'll continue to smash my thumb!

What you mean is the "lasso", that thing you can use to
mark lots of files...

Hi Raziel,

>What you mean is the "lasso"...

OK, that's an interesting concept! Thanks. Someone mentioned 'ant parade' earlier. So, any ideas on how Workbench might get caught in this infinite loop?
I'm a sucker for ContextMenus.
