9.5 destruction derby

I went out of town for a week. Came back and launched 9.5 this morning. 
It took over most of my cpu power, although it didn't show up in top. So 
I quit and relaunched with no third-party extensions. Same thing. Did it 
again (expecting different results, maybe? Hmmm...) and got the same 
thing except now 4wDevolution no longer appeared.

My preferences file grew from 6.5k to 189k. And 4wDevolution was no 
longer in my Plugins folder. I reinstated devolution, trashed (renamed) 
my prefs file, and launched again. All's right with the world. I 
painstakingly reset all my preferences and things are working again.

Weird. There seems to be a large cache custom property attached to the 
livecode7 preferences file.
