when i imported a big module such as os, it's very slow to display the completion list.

import os
os. # very slow

and in .vimrc:

let g:pymode_rope_lookup_project = 0

and in the current dir i've run :PymodeRopeNewProject

It's far, far worse if you use a module like wx. vim froze for over a minute.

You can use let g:pymode_rope_complete_on_dot = 0 (which I use anyway, because having my editor freeze when I already know what I'm typing is pretty annoying), but tab-completion will still be deathly slow, and there's no way to interrupt it besides kill -9.

edit: According to strace, vim is busily statting every (non-Python) file in the project, over and over and over and over, for every module Rope tries to scan. So for a module like wx, every one of the dozens of attempted imports triggers a whole new recursive scan of the current directory. I have no idea why.

I am having this same issue, but at home only, where I use Debian. At work where I use Ubuntu 13, everything runs smoothly.

For me setting let g:pymode_rope_lookup_project = 0 fixed the issue completely (as far as I can tell).
