Summary0001096: aMule uses up ALL resources at startup when there are many new files in the shared folder
DescriptionI have a specific folder into which I download everything from different protocols (torrent, amule, soulseek, etc). I, for instance, I don't use aMule for a week, and during that week I did many downloads, the moment I startup aMule, everything freezes, sometimes for several minutes, because aMule is exploring the new files, and producing their AICH.
This whole process is VERY I/O intensive, since it has to read all that data from the hard drive.

My proposal is the following: Can't you divide the part of the code of aMule that scans files and produces their AICH code into another process, and give it a VERY low NICE? (Or, if we are in a Windows enviroment, a low "priority") This way starting up aMule would be less painful, and new files would be added progressively.
Additional InformationI'm using aMule 2.1.3, on Gentoo Linux (kernel 2.6.15).

The hashing is already done on a thread and with the lowest priority.

I'm marking this as "won't fix". As Kry pointed out, we already give the relevant thread the lowest possible priority, and moving the task to a seperate problem would just complicate the issue even further, and not help that much, as this is an issue of IO-scheduling rather than CPU-scheduling.
