comment how to use du to see files greater than a threshold size
Thanks, gt5 looks very interesting it. I'm going to install it now. Of course there is also "baobab" for GUI.

Reinstall or try a different distribution or a different browser or a different version of Eclipse?

To confirm, 'top' reports that Chrome and Eclipse are using all the CPU? Are you running code when this happens? Is it a bug in your code?

What you are experiencing is certainly not typical behaviour for any Linux machine. You need to isolate the application which is causing the problem. For example, if the problem only exhibits with Chrome or Eclipse. If one process is hogging the CPU, other applications may also not respond, making it look as though that application is hanging. You could also try a different distribution. How have you tested RAM and HDD?

comment Hardlink files not the same
That would mean creating a second repository? At present all files under one folder are versioned, which is my repository.

That does "solve" it in the sense that the file is then (always) available in the target folder. The versioning is then the problem however: the soft link is versioned and then points to the "wrong" location for the source file from another machine. I'm using Bazaar.

Yes, I think this is exactly what is happening. The file is deleted and recreated on each update. Thanks. It was a session file from Firefox under Ubuntu Linux for reference.

This problem presents itself even before I execute any versioning on the files. In fact, I've just tested it by hardlinking the source to a file in a folder I just created. Running that code (very useful thanks; I was not familiar with "-samefile") shows that the hardlink is in place. Each file has a link count of 2. I ran a "watch md5sum ..." on the files, and after a minute or so when the source is modified, the sums are different. And now the link count for both files is 1! Someone the hardlink has been broken?
