unstable context

POSTED BY: david schafer

My understanding is that the suggestions bar tries a number of evaluations behind the scenes, each wrapped in TimeConstrained so they don't take too long. Depending on the input, some of these predictions are symbolic computations that end up using (and autoloading) the parallel kernel functionality. The context path corruption can happen when this package loading process gets interrupted in the middle.

The developers are aware of this problem and looking into addressing it.

Try turning off the predictive interface (suggestions bar).

Yes that seems to eliminate the problem.

Thank you.

Is this phenomenon something I should try to understand or should I just consider it a bug?
