When I set up an analysis (in this case melodic) in the GUI, it takes an incredibly long time to re-gain control after entering file-related data:
* input time series
* alternative references for BBR realignment
* high-resolution anatomical images
* saving the settings in an fsf file
This seems to be related to an integrity check of all these image files (as the file names that are saved eventually are not necessarily the same as those entered).
Would it be an idea to move this integrity check to one place only? Or to give users the choice when to perform an integrity check (as long as this is done before 'go' and always during 'save' -- cf submission forms with a compulsory validation step)? I don't doubt that funny NFS properties are also to blame here, just looking for a way to speed things up...
