Cyberduck 5.2.1 crashes on uploads and downloads (Mac OS X 10.5.8)

Ever since I have upgraded to 5.2.1, Cyberduck crashes whenever I try to upload or download files to any FTP servers in my bookmarks. This problem happens whether I use the transfer icons or by drag and dropping files. The application window freezes, my CPU overload bars go up, and a few seconds later Cyberduck crashes.

I'm running Mac OS X 10.5.8 on a Mac Intel. Restarting the Mac and repairing the authorizations didn't help.

Any suggestions?

Can you please try the latest nightly build and post the crash log if your issue still exists.

Thank you for your quick reply. I've downloaded the latest nightly build -- 3.3b1 (5202). I run it from the Desktop and didn't put it on top of the other version.

The crashes seem to have disappeared. I've been able to download and upload a few files from different FTP serveurs. The build is extremely slow -- when you click on a transfer button, it takes a minute or two before the transfer actually starts -- but I suppose that nightly builds aren't optimized for speed.

Let me know if I can be of any further help.

There are still some performance issues in the 3.3 branch. A minute or two seems to very long though. Do you have a huge list of old transfers in your Transfers window which could cause that?

Hi again. Sorry for my late reply.

You're absolutely correct -- I had a pretty huge list of old transfers, it actually took my Mac Pro almost a minute to execute the select all command. I wiped out the history, and now Cyberduck is extremely more responsive.

Thanks for the tip!
