It wound up being an issue with the way Komodo launches processes, one that really isn’t an issue 99.9% of the time, but .01% of the time – it is. All MacOS 10.12.4 did is punch this percentage up a bit, and bring a Komodo bug to the surface that has been around for a very long time. In essence, we should be thanking Apple, as well as our users, for helping us finally address this issue.
That’s Komodo 10.2.3 in a nutshell; a stability release which should resolve a particularly annoying hanging issue likely affecting all platforms, though particularly MacOS.
Big shoutout to our community for helping us diagnose this issue. Given it’s random nature, it was not easy. I would like to thank tuckdesign and NeilFraser in particular for their efforts, which went above and beyond.
