Hi, been having this problem for a little while and it hasn't sorted itself out, so I'm posting about it:
Whenever I start Sublime (v3.2 build 3200 on macOS) I notice my CPU usage goes to 100%.
In my process list I see three processes within the Sublime Text group: cat, tr, and fold.
Processes in ps:
mferrier 96811 89.3 0.0 4269236 972 ?? R 9:10am 7:35.65 cat /dev/urandom
mferrier 96812 24.2 0.0 4268088 848 ?? R 9:10am 1:58.95 tr -dc a-zA-Z0-9
mferrier 96813 8.8 0.0 4268076 856 ?? S 9:10am 0:42.82 fold -w 24
So this leads me to believe something in Sublime is running
cat /dev/urandom | tr -dc a-zA-Z0-9 | fold -w 24.
Generally I just KILL the cat process and it stays dead until the next time I start up Sublime Text.
I can only assume one of the installed plugins is doing this for some reason, but I have no idea how to figure out which plugin is misbehaving so I can uninstall it.
Probably deleting and reinstalling Sublime would fix it, or deleting all packages and restarting one at a time until I find which plugin is responsible, but is there any way to figure this out without process of elimination?
