When I launch
OS X's application based
firewall, starts using a lot of CPU.
After some research I narrowed it down to this:
socketfilterfw reads all the files in
Xcode.app's bundle and does this every time
Xcode launches. Gigabytes of data, every time.
It doesn't matter what settings the firewall has, I tried them all. The only thing that stops this is to deactivate the firewall (before launching Xcode).
Has anyone else this effect or an idea what this is about?
I just tried Xcode on a clean install (OS X and Xcode from ADC) and it did not solve it. But it started the scan not when Xcode launches but when a project gets executed (CMD-R). So it starts scanning either when Xcode launches or when executing a project.
