Adobe Photoshop: 21.0.0 20191018.r.37 2019/10/18: 614690fb487  x64
ScriptListener plugin is installed.

After updating to 21.0.0 I see unexpected behaviour of ScriptListener - the listener's log ScriptListenerJS.log is very large and grow very quickly even I do nothing inside the Photoshop. And the log is full of the MRUFileListChanged event blocks like the following

var idMRUFileListChanged = stringIDToTypeID( "MRUFileListChanged" );
    var desc5980 = new ActionDescriptor();
    var iddontRecord = stringIDToTypeID( "dontRecord" );
    desc5980.putBoolean( iddontRecord, true );
    var idforceNotify = stringIDToTypeID( "forceNotify" );
    desc5980.putBoolean( idforceNotify, true );
executeAction( idMRUFileListChanged, desc5980, DialogModes.NO );

Steps to reproduce
  • Close Photoshop
  • Clear ScriptListenerJS.log and save
  • Run Photoshop, create document and draw something
  • Close document without saving.
  • Check ScriptListenerJS.log 

Expected behaviour - the log is stable, no records being added (because no actions is being performed in Photoshop)

Actual behaviour: the log is infinitely growing by adding the MRUFileListChanged blocks mentioned mentioned above. The only way to stop this is to close Photoshop.

This behaviour almost blocked my jsx scripting work and this is very sad.

In PS  21.0.1 this seems to be fixed. MRUFileListChanged event are present, but in limited amount.

This should be fully fixed in the 21.1 update that went out last night.
