version 2.12.4 looping when "Include subfolders" selected

Postby maxxx126 » Wed Jul 07, 2010 6:15 pm

I recently installed the version 2.12.4 and when I try to compare directory trees using a filter and selecting "Include subfolders", the program seems to loop and the list of "Items total" keeps growing and I have to stop it. It also compares files it was not supposed to compare as I use the "exclude" option. I've tried it on Windows 7 and Windows XP, same behavior.
It used to work fine with the older version I had on my previous computer.

I tried to remove all "##' of the filter file as I saw there was a similar bug which was fixed in 2.12.4, but it didn't help.

If I remove the line

"d: \\*$"

from the filter it doesn't loop, but also doesn't compare the subfolders.
