"Mousepad" CPU issue

Postby movobojo » 04 Feb 2017, 11:51

Hello,

when I use Mousepad the CPU consumption is normal (5%). But when I use Mousepad when there is the warning "warning, you are using the root account, you may harm your system", the CPU consumption is permanently at 70%...

Is that normal behavior or is it a possible bug?
If normal, why so much CPU?

Install and use leafpad instead. It seems less problematic in root mode. :)
