Summary0006187: Copy/Paste of thousands of tracks --> lethargic UI
DescriptionWhen there are thousands of tracks in the clipboard, the MM UI becomes very sluggish, and subsequent copy/paste operations sometimes fail.
Steps To Reproduce1 Copy 5000 tracks in the tracklist
2 Try pasting them into the NP list via Right-click > Paste
--> It takes several seconds (including some screen redraws) before the context menu appears and the operation proceeds
3 Try selecting a track in the tracklist
--> It takes 1-2 seconds to select any track
4 Try pasting another track into the NP list
--> The operation sometimes fails (the context menu is greyed out)

The only way to get out of this state is to copy a single track or a single word in Notepad to clear the clipboard.

-When MM is in the lethargic state, other apps perform as expected--it's only MM that's affected
-One one occasion when attempting to copy/paste in EditPad (after triggering this state in MediaMonkey), a 'Cannot open clipboard' error occured.
-This bug exists in 3.1.1 (it's not a regression)
Additional InformationPossibly related to the following reports of UI slowness:

And/or the following clipboard issue:
TagsNo tags attached.
Fixed in build1301

I also noticed this lethargic UI issue while testing 0006203. But if more than 5000 tracks are in clipboard then not only MM UI is lethargic, but also iTunes UI.
e.g. Clicking on the [Controls] or [Edit] buttons in the iTunes main menu causes iTunes UI to freeze for several seconds.

So it implies that it is obviously issue with overfilled clipboard. I haven't tested on Win7, but on Win XP it is an issue. Maybe we should rather (when more than 1000 tracks are to be copied to the cliboard) just copy only a link to an object in memory that would include the tracks instead.

I have just tested it on Win7 and the issue with overfilled clipboard still exists.
