Synergy locks on change screens with a hung foreground app

0 posts in this topic

When I try to switch screens while the foreground app is hung (e.g. a stalled progress bar, thinking about something without updating the window) synergy will lock up. Sometimes synergy comes back when the foreground app recovers, and sometimes synergy crashes. I suspect what is happening is that the app is not processing windows messages and synergy sends it a 'lose focus' message. The app isn't running the windows message pump and so everything hangs up. Has anyone else seen this - any workarounds? This is with a windows 7 server and a windows 8.1 client.
