I have a repo that was converted from CVS that has 17000+ tags and millions of individual commits. When I right click on a java class and choose Compare With --> Branch, Tag, or Reference it brings up a window where there are Local, References, Remote Tracking and tags groups. When I try to expand the tag group to list all the tags it takes an out of memory error.

In order to try to figure out what was happening I wrote a java program using JGit. I found that I could list the tags just fine, but if I tried to load the commits for the tags it took the error. I found something that seemed to say that was what egit is doing.

Has anyone else ran into this issue? Is there a configuration in eclipse to prevent the listing of tags from loading the commits until after you choose which tag you want to actually compare?

Nope, there are no config options... Please file a bug.
