Topic: Unnecessary device scan?
One of my ideas to improve GParted is to avoid unnecessary scans of devices.
Current practice is that after each command run a total scan of all devices is applied. This can cause lengthy delay times as some devices react very slowly or GParted has problems reading them, I don't know. If you split your work into many command runs for security, you may suffer most of your time with the tool in "wait-state"!
I don't think it is a necessary behaviour. It should, to layman's reason, suffice to scan only the affected devices after a command run, thus naturally slow devices which you likely never look at in GParted, won't cause you distress of wait-time. Also, such a modification is probably done in an eye-wink (if you are into it).
