[cdt-dev] Fixed: Browsing CDT Tags really slow on Linux


Some of you may have noticed (for quite a long time now) that browsing the CDT tag list using EGit was
very slow on Linux, to the point that I would never expand the tag list.  

It turns out that one of the tags was pointing to a commit containing a special character which GTK does not
handle very well, thus causing the slowdown.  See for details.

I have removed the tag and the problem is gone.  However, if you want that fix on your local repo,
you have to use a special command from the git command-line to sync the deleted tag.

  git fetch --prune --tags origin

Happy tag browsing :)
