openSuSE 13.1 – Copy Paste memory use

Since I had installed openSUSE 13.1,copy pasting has been a real problem. Whenever doing a copy paste operation, the entire system became useless due to copy-paste process taking all the system memory.

This problem didn’t seem to be any application specific, as this problem was occurring in Dolphin, Konqueror as well as in Krusader . And when I checked “cp” command from the terminal, even that was causing the issue.

After a lot of search, I read somewhere that is the kernel that came with openSUSE 13.1 which has this issue with copy paste. The kernel version was 13.11.

I updated the kernel from openSUSE stable kernel repo to 13.13. And yes, the problem is gone! So it was a problem with kernel 13.11. My system is currently having kernel 13.14,and till now the system is running fine.

Did you face the same problem with kernel 13.11?

P.S: Usually I do not choose to make any updates to my system, as I like a very stable system, but this issue forced me to update what is the basis of any Linux system.
