yes - I sent this bug to a Wolfram researcher on August 18. But
unfortunately there's no new information on this issue that I can add
right now... It's not the only bug or crash I've reported to them, so
I guess one just has to patiently hope that this "almost-beta-test"
phase will lead to improvements in the next update.
