Subject: Big problem: org agenda freezes my process
Date: Fri, 30 Apr 2021 11:59:53 -0600	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <87mttf1wme.fsf@byu.edu> (raw)

I've been trying to debug a nearly show-stopping issue for a few weeks now; the next step is a more thorough bisection of my setup, but I wanted to send this in case anyone else experiences this or already knows the solution.

Lately, when I try to view an orgmode agenda it seems that two things make it cause my emacs CPU threat to spin to max and freeze up, which is a huge problem since I'm an exwm user and live in my agenda view. As far as I've been able to tell, when an item from today is clocked into multiple times in the same day, it prompts most agenda actions to result in a freeze and some kind of loop that is binding up my system. It has some gaps, so if I spam C-g I will eventually, usually, escape given 30 seconds to 2 minutes.

I first ran into this problem thinking it was because I had an entry with a "+1d" note on it, so it would always show up; but inconsistent results led me to the more precise discovery that it's apparently when it is logged in to multiple times in the day AND when it is shown with =(org-agenda-show-log t)=, which I had on my default. At its worst, even moving the cursor in the agenda buffer would trigger the freezing, let alone actually clocking in/out of anything. However, when I am not showing the log, it seems like it's ok. I've tried =toggle-debug-on-quit" but I don't recognize anything in the stack trace that actually tells me what it is doing when it spins to a halt.

I'm currently on org mode version 9.3.7. I've tried with different versions but without a change in behavior. This, combined with the fact that the issues seem to have begun in the past month, indicates that it probably isn't orgmode itself causing this issue, but I haven't located what it IS yet. If anyone has ideas on how to debug this without a bisection, or an has dealt with this before, I'm more than eager to hear it; in the meanwhile, I'll perform a more thorough bisection of my init file as time permits.
