Scanning files hangs

Hi there,

there is a discussion recurring from time to time about PyCharm hanging on startup at scanning files. It is not a real "hang", tough, it seems more as if PyCharm is trying to load Framework-data recursively. There is no thread-dump, because is does not crash, but after a while, it tells me that memory is running low.

I did not find a solution for this, even not in this support forum. Any ideas highly appreciated, since I can't use PyCharm currently.

Thanks,

Stefan

Hello Stefan,

This problem can happen if there are recursive symlinks under any of the

directories listed in PYTHONPATH. Unfortunately the only workaround for the

time being is removing the symbolic links.
