Dupes with regex extract formula

Post by dougbenham »

Using 1.5.0.1371a.

With the following search..

Code: Select all

column1:=regex_extract($stem:,"^[^\-]+-\s\d\d.\d\d.") column1: dupe:column1
.. I find duplicates for a formula based column. It works great. However, when I open one of the file results, it disappears from the results until I hit F5.. and the file re-appears in the results.

The search token causing the bug is..

Code: Select all

column1:
.. If you exclude this, the behavior doesn't happen, opening a result file does not remove it from the results list. The reason I have this is because I want to only include results where the regex extraction succeeded.

This issue is caused by an optimization in 1366.

Thank you for bringing the issue to my attention.

It will be fixed in the next alpha update.



I wonder why the file is being modified when opened?
The modified reason will be shown in the debug console (Tools -> Debug -> Console) as a USN event in Cyan color.

Results list contains 56 items. After opening 1 of the items, the following shows in the debug console:

Code: Select all

exec: first expr $exec("%1")
exec: command $exec("%1")
exec: fullfilename E:\test.mp4
exec: depth 0
exec: exec "%1")
exec: depth 1
exec: got "E:\test.mp4"
exec: shellexecute file:E:\test.mp4 param:
shellexecute invoke E:\test.mp4
sub buf killed
set 1 run history in 0.000051 seconds
exec: main thread regained focus
new results 55
update index C:
USN DATA_OVERWRITE PcaAppLaunchDic.txt
USN CLOSE DATA_OVERWRITE PcaAppLaunchDic.txt
read usn journal C: in 0.003708 seconds
updated C: in 0.000023 seconds
Maybe an important note, the test.mp4 is on a network share.

The related filename.lnk file in %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\ also temporary disappears.

(probably for the same reason, but mention it anyway)

The modified reason will be shown in the debug console (Tools -> Debug -> Console) as a RDC event in Cyan color.

RDC = ReadDirectoryChange


The related filename.lnk file in %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\ also temporary disappears.
The file is likely being modified so the same issue applies.

Strangely I am not seeing any USN or RDC events for the file in question or any of its parent directories. After those
exec:
lines, the file isn't mentioned again.

I figured it out, its the run history. Disabling the run history feature prevents the bug.

Everything 1.5.0.1372a fixes an issue with columna: not finding new results.
