This is what I did first. Still, opening the particular notebook pegs the CPU.

Still pegs.

Moving ~/.zim/עבודה/notebook.zim allows the notebook to "open" but I
just get a blank window with a Zim taskbar icon. There is no content
in the windows (grey background, no widgets).

Copying the notebook.zim of a working notebook does not help, opening
it (with the other notebook's name in the Open Notebook dialogue)
still pegs the CPU.

Deleting one of the עבודה subdirectories did solve the problem.
Interestingly, after opening Zim I was able to see the subpages in the
Tree, but as I clicked on them to see their contents (obviously empty)
they disappeared from the Tree. So obviously there exists a cache

Copying the subdirectory back from the backup that I made less than
one hour ago, and Zim works as expected. That means that the files as
of now (with Zim working) are identical to those when Zim was pegging
the CPU. Filesystem error, maybe?
