If you clean only PathBrowser when you have the problem, is it enough?
I will try and see if that works.

Also, to be clear, *it does not always hang*. It does quite often, but sometimes without me touching the .ini file (because I just forget to do that sometimes), it works. And sometimes it does not work. I cannot predict it.

ok, so when you have the problem please check PathBrowser & History?
