panx has begun to crash so frequently that i cant continue to use it.
crashes occur while procedures are running, but also nearly every time i close a window.
i’m running os 10.12.1 on a macpro5,1, quad-core intel xeon, 2.8 ghz.
i just replaced the hard drive, which was failing, and all the ram (8 gb).
the drive is 1 tb, c. 45% used.
the crashes are actually worse since the hardware upgrades.
i reinstalled the os about 3 weeks ago; i reinstalled panx today.
re memory usage, kernel_task uses c. 750 mb, which may or may not be kind of high. opinion is divided.
panx with no files open uses c. 75 mb.
it may be relevant that i always have a file open that has virtually no data but is full of procedures that are farcalled by other files and that initializes several global variables. this file, c. 1.4 mb, used to be an autoload in the halcyon days of pan6. it is essential to my operation. with just this file open, panx uses c. 105 mb.
i stepped up conversion to panx because pan6 performance was suffering under os 10.12. it wasnt easy, but i was managing. however the frequency of crashes spiked yesterday and has become insufferable today.
i’d be happy to entertain any suggestions. i have to make this work.
