I am using Zsh version: 4.3.11 with the oh-my-zsh framework.
When coupled with "oh-my-zsh", Zsh will attempt to autocomplete SVN (and Git for that matter) commands when the TAB key is pressed during a command. Since it obviously does some parsing-magic behind the curtains, autocompleting SVN commands in a huge repository introduces a significant delay.
svn add a[TAB] * ~2-3 second delay * svn add apps/
This is driving me to the edge, and after a couple of months with nothing but praise left over for Zsh, I have temporarily reverted to Bash, as being unable to use the shell in one specific repository is just ridiculous.
There are two additional factors here, and although I'm unsure of their significance, I'll list them anyways:
- This is done over SSH
- Normal filename-autocompletion is completely instant. Only filename-autocompletion during SVN commands is laggy.
