Summary0003854: UI becomes unresponsive when attempting to download and use DXF import libraries (python legacy)
DescriptionWhen not using legacy, it appears to draw nothing at all, but does not fail in the same way. The UI becomes unresponsive at the OS level, with Ctrl+Alt+T and similar shortcuts not working. This makes it difficult to gather more information about the problem, I ended up restarting with the power button after waiting several seconds. I also tried after installing (successfully through the add-on manager) the dxf_library add-on, with the same result.
Steps To Reproduce
  1. Start up FreeCAD
  2. Go to Edit->Preferences->Import-Export and check

    Use legacy python importer


    Automatic update (legacy importer only)

  3. Apply the changes and attempt to open my DXF file
  4. Wait
  5. Wait longer
  6. Try to stop the operation
  7. Try to close FreeCAD through the UI
  8. Try to access a terminal
  9. Restart the machine with the power button
