When I download artist information from within "edit artist" dialog and click OK, the GUI comes to a complete halt for about 20 seconds. The screen turns black - only the visualization is present, but paused. The playback works perfectly fine in the background.
I guess, this happens when there is a lot of "similar artists" involved.
Ok, thanks. I will analyse this further. I suspect that too many updates are performed when similar artists are involved.
>> I assume you get the same effect even when a visualization is not running?
Yes, and I still get this effect when neither music nor visualization is running.
>> Do you have any artist name this is specifically related to ?
No, this happens on all artists.

I'm pretty sure this is the cause. When I don't download artist information, but only add multiple "similar artists", I'll get this effect.
Since my database (MariaDB 10.1.9) runs on a separate machine, these queries might be a little slow.

Do you have any artist name this is specifically related to ?
