RE: Re: BUG: GUI freeze during renaming

Stefan, I haven't taken time to look at the code at all, but this seems like a situation where you should separate the UI renaming code from the actual rename operation. In other words, once the user types in the name and presses enter or clicks somewhere else, post a message that will be processed after all the cleanup code is run. The current flow of code can finish the cleanup work and return the UI to a known state. Then, you process the message that has been waiting, and perform the actual rename work.

While I can reproduce this, I have no idea on how to solve this.
One problem is that debugging doesn't help much: as soon as the dialog looses focus, the issue goes away (i.e., if it hangs, just switch to another window and back again, and it won't hang anymore).
