Finder lag

I’m hunting QuickTime for Java bugs on an Intel Xserve, so I’ve got this loop dumping out 100 copies of a hinted 3gp movie. I’ve got a Finder window in list view open on the machine to check that the files are being written out. Of the 100 movies dumped out, 18 of them are 160k, 3 of them are 4k, and the rest are 100k bytes in length. Bizarrely all the movies play properly, and are the same length in bytes (via the Get Info window). “ls -l” also lists them as the same size.

Closing the Finder window and refreshing it now shows me all the file sizes as 100k. Sigh.

On the plus side, the test case has crashed Java at least once 🙂
