Close & remove from memory - Engine hang

I have the same experience. I routinely run 3 versions of LC simultaneously 
with different stacks and projects in each. I've left them all running for 
weeks at a time without any issues (I don't shut down my Mac unless there's 
an OS update that requires a restart.) I don't doubt at all that the 
problems exist, only that it may not be as bad for everyone as Curry suggests.

By all means they need to be fixed but pinning down these elusive behaviors 
can be difficult. I do recall one hang I had quite a while ago but I'm not 
sure why it happened. I'm also not yet running Big Sur and I get the 
feeling that OS has introduced problems that didn't occur before.
