Steam: Long delay between click "install" and the window popup
kokoko3k 10 Oct
I noticed that when i'm going to install a new game in steam, there is a delay after i click install.
meanwhile the steam UI is unresponsive.
Shadow of the tomb raider and shadow of mordor take almost 30 seconds, Howllow night about 44 seconds and others just one or two seconds.
Somebody has a clue on why this is happening and have a possible workaround please?


For whatever reason, and it happens only with some games, as soon as i click install, my network mounted ftp folder (curlftpfs) just stop answering and hangs, hanging the steam client itself.
An handmade script i made force kill the mounting process (curlftpfs) after it becomes stuck and it checks for it every 30 seconds on average.
Weird stuff.
