|Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:||Copied to github as #:||10837|
After updating from 0.8.1 to 0.9 ecw rester images that before were displayed at once now take very long time: 4 images of 9 MB each one take about 8 minutes and images of about 700 MB don't display after one hour.

Reproduced in two machines with debian-testing and reported by other user in windows XP

The problem persists in 44cc1223 (SVN r8224). Now a bug squashing is being planned, I would really appreciate if this bug is resolved, as I need to use ecw rasters in my daily work and it's really annoying to wait so much time each time I move map canvas, having to use other programs too often.

-Set default contrast enhancement to STRETCH_TO_MIN_MAX

- Status changed from Feedback to Closed
- Resolution set to fixed
There is now an ability to set the default contrast enhancement that will remain persistent between sessions, which resolves this problem to some extent. If stretching is too slow and not needed, the user can elect not to stretch on initial load.
I think this closes this ticket for QGIS, if there are any upstream issues with GDAL that are also fixed in the future, all the more better.
If this is still not a satisfactory solution, feel free to reopen.
