This will make it stop updating the connections file every few seconds:

But it's still doing too much work. I guess it's updating widgets even when nothing changed.

Replying to tomeu:

Confirmed, we should apply the patch above for 0.84 and make sure for 0.86 that nothing expensive is done when nothing changes. One idea is to wrap all instance variables that influence the UI in methods such as:

    def _set_X(self, new_X):
        if self._X == new_X:
        self._X = new_X
        [update UI]
