+ update 2020: WARNING - support of the decompiler is now VERY LIMITED. There are no active developers. This means we will NOT develop new features and/or fix most of bugs. We left the tracker running in case somebody from community would like to work on it. Sorry for the inconvenience.

You open file in ffdec_1.7.4u1 on Mac OSX 10.9 (mavericks), open a class click the edit button and change some action script. The click save. It will hang for hours with no changes made an unresponsive and cpu stuck at 100%. In ffdec_1.7.1 the same action is working and the changes are made. However in ffdec_1.7.1 on "save as" after changes are made, a hang occurs as well but the file is saved properly first so I can just kill it and have the result. The file is part of an "open source" payroll system for which no flash sources are provided and the only method of customizing is to edit the swf. It stands to mention that neither version is able to decompile the whole file and throws severe decompilation errors. But with the earlier version I was able to change what I needed to change.
It was fixed in the latest nightly build. Please try it.
