FS#925 - Attribute definitions duplicated when loaded from DWG

Title says it all. Cannot get QCAD to synchronise attributes on Fedora 19 box with QCAD 3.2.2 installed as the machine hangs (a single core of CPU maxed out). This is not present on my Windows machine (Windwows 7).

I can provide a sample file privately if needed.

Thanks for your report. Please send the file to info [at] qcad.org, thanks.

Thanks for the file.

The file contains many (in some cases >100) duplicate attribute definitions in some blocks. It also contains many duplicate attribute entities, likely as a result from synchronizations.

The cause of the problem appears to be a Teigha bug which leads to duplicate imports of attribute definitions from DWG files.

I've fixed the file and sent you a copy. As a workaround for the bug, please save to the DXF format for now.

The next release of QCAD has a workaround built in and should no longer suffer from this problem. Also attribute synchronization has been improved to never synchronize duplicate attribute definitions.
