When I'm on my Mac Mini (2.26ghz Core 2 Duo, 4GB ram, running Lion) and I get a message, the app freezes. In fact I think the whole computer freezes. Growl notifies me before I can even see the message. I can run propane on my MBP 15", i5, 8gb ram, running lion with no problem. Help!

    Hi Brian,

    I'm running Propane on my macbook air (Lion, core2 duo) and haven't seen that problem...

    A few questions:

    • Is it safe to assume that running Campfire in Safari works okay? (specifically Safari, other browsers aren't an indicator).
    • Does disabling sounds in Propane preferences change the behavior?
    • Does it lock up when you send a message?
    • If you open Console.app is there anything that mentions Propane in the logs (with a timestamp near the lock-up)?

    Sorry I can't be more decisive - this is the first time I've had a report of Propane locking up like this...

    Regards, Trev

    It could be related to my audio cable. I accidentally disconnected it upgrading memory. Will fix and let you know
