I would also agree with that. Mathematica seems to hang for no apparent
reason and the only solution is to kill the process and restart, often
losing work in progress. I posted a query about this several times on
the forum, but got no replies apart from someone who confirmed that they
experienced the same problem. It is difficult to contact Wolfram
technical help without a specific sequence that crashes the program.
