The client starts after about a 5 minutes and repositories get loaded in... it freezes on every interaction.

I get that git is a blocking process but UI should not hang on pressing the help button.

  • Number of repos bookmarked

  • Go to Tools>Options and uncheck both "Refresh automatically when files change" and "Refresh when application is not in focus"
