This sounds exactly like a problem I'm trying to solve on our OS 9.2.2
Mac, only its the Finder that freezes. Same exact behavior -- a freeze
immediately after a menu item is chosen. I've identified it as an
extension conflict, only I don't know which extension yet.
Do you get the behavior only in your app? Or does it happen in other
apps too? Does it happen if you reboot with extensions off?
