Sometimes when I use
Open Recent in the
File menu of TextEdit, the path appears as a long trail of icons. Often (as shown below) it is doubled, identical on two lines.
This seems to happen spontaneously, doesn't look like that a few minutes before or later, and nothing notable (that I'm aware of) has happened.
I've seen this happen for a USB flash drive, and also for local files on my laptop's hard drive.
Question: Why does this happen, and does it have any significance that I should be aware of?
edit: This might have tended to be associated with heavy use or times when available disk space is low (on USB or local) but I can't be certain; I don't remember and it hasn't happened recently.
