after some time, when lurking in Elementa’s depths, vvvv becomes totally unresponsive for +/- 10 seconds when doing simple things such as adding a node, inspecting a tooltip or adding a point on a link.
the blue circle of death appears, and windows prompts the “wait for program to respond” alert box.
it also occurred that vvvv would become unresponsive (stuck in “New IL Compilation”), and pressing CTRL+S would instantly bring it back to life.
this behavior is not present on 2020.2.2.

- in VL.Elementa, checkout this commit : 433ccb4 (on the
- open the Use a Panel help patch from the help browser
- there, create a
Scrollbarnode and plug it to the
- go inside the scrollbar node and start adding point to links and drag them around (seems this happens all the time when doing this)
- the freeze should happen
- sometimes, after the error message is gone, vvvv stays unresponsive and says “New IL compilation in the making”, but doing a CTRL+S makes it usable instantly.
happy to provide more details if necessary.
