No, ScopeHunter is causing no problems for me at all.
The plugin I was referring to was a personal scheme modification plugin that freezes ST as soon as it loads. It used to work fine, then a month or so ago, if I locked or sleep my system and came back and logged in again, it would no longer update things. Then on the recent upgrade, ST freezes when the module gets loaded. Something behind the scene as changed, and I haven't spent any time trying to debug it yet. It is one of those things that if I had a vague idea of what changed in the plugin system, maybe I could quickly resolve the issue, but right now I don't know where to start looking, and I don't have time to right now to fix a plugin whose use is for aesthetics only.
I will try ScopeHunter on some more systems, but I can't imagine why it would be crashing things for you, and I honestly doubt I am going to be able to reproduce this. But if I do, I will let you know.
