i can confirm this issue as well (AS3), if class is big enough it will take very long time to decompile. The weirdest part is that cpu is idle while waiting...

Some method decompilation still timeouts, but the program should not freeze anymore. And you can always cancel the decompilation process. You can find the nightly build (ac7d416d6a03) here: /
