Call for testing with 6.6.2 RC3

I'm having troubles with making snapshots on this release. I have numerous images and the snapshot (previously fine on 6.6) is not reliably working, even tho I have is wrapped in wait 0.1 seconds with messages.

A test stack worked, so it may be the other images on my card. I'll try some other experiments to test this.

But, I thought the "wait for 0.1 seconds with messages" made the system wait until all operations we're complete, and wrapping the snapshot command in these statements would be sufficient. In any case rc3 broke my application. I'm on Mac osx 10.9.2
