the Devs are looking at the problem and have an idea as to the cause.

Same issue here.

Any update?

Has anyone noticed that the problem occurs when a specific action or event occurs. Such as someone opening private chat window, an event that would be played, the client about disconnect or reconnect?

Does it only happen while you are playing a game?

What kind of system are you using it on i.e. a low end single core machine or a highend system with multiple cores.

Any such feedback that would help us to duplicate the problem. We tested 3.0.9 for a long time before releasing it and never once ran into the problem. This leads me to believe that it isn't happening that often but after looking at the lockup log from one person I do believe that it is a bug in the program. But being able to duplicate the problem a few times would go a long way to fixing it properly before we send out 3.0.10

My experience has been that the issue occurs intermittently, without user interaction.

I am finding will beach ball approximately once per hour.

For example: Wedesday evening our WoW guild was in a raid, and the raid leader was going over the encounter - I was not touching the keyboard or mouse and nothing was happening in-game. The RL was talking and then suddenly nothing. I minimized the WoW screen and Vent was beach balling.

Last night we were having a guild discussion on Vent (no other Apps were running except Safari and Vent and the same thing occurred. All of the sudden it stopped functioning.

My guess is that it has something to do with how Vent is handling sampling bit-rate changes executed by the OS.
