I imagine I am the only one facing this sort of issue, or HoudahGeo would not even exist...
OS X El Capitan, HoudahGeo 5.0.3
Workflow: go to Folders (top left pane), pick a random .CR2 (or even .JPG) image from the bottom left pane, drag it into the big, middle "Images" pane.
"Loading 1 image" pops up and stays there. Wait a few minutes, get bored. Hit "Cancel", the window turns into "Stopping" and stays there. Get annoyed.
Same result if I hit the "Add Image" icon on the top right corner.
The only way to get out of these freezes is to force stop the application.
This issue started the second time I ever tried HoudahGeo.
I removed my ~/Library/Application Support/HoudahGeo to no avail.
I checked the logs, I am only getting two kings of logs from HoudahGeo:
