visible navigator makes session restore last a minute and locks MS now and then
When 'show navigator' in the preferences window is enabled, the startup of my MS takes about a minute in stead of a few seconds. The delay is in restoring the previous session, where I normally have 3...5 scores open (each 1 or 2 pages).
Also MS might lock up during use for a minute or so after some action in the user interface.
On startup and during lockup the system monitor shows that 1 core op my cpu is fully (100%) occupied by mscore.
This is completely repeatable. Startup without navigator only takes a few seconds.
I had this before, see issue https://musescore.org/en/node/327264 but then I could not find the problem and after a few weeks of strubling and using and older version of ms, it disappeared.
Until now, but now I know what I changed in the preferences, first tab: on startup show Navigator and Play Panel.
Workaround: wait until ms is responsive again and switch off 'Show Navigator' in the preferences.
Attached is a screen image of typical session of mine, except that the problematic Navigator is now visible at the bottom.
