It seems that after 10 minutes into editing something, the playhead in the timeline would stop moving, along with the sliders in the color correction panel.

The same thing happens to the color correction panel. The sliders would not move, but it still adjusts the colors. I have to exit the program and restart it in order for the problem to go away (not for long). This problem is really slowing down my workflow.

god - thank you. I wasted an hour with the very same problem. I deleted the files in the bin that was giving me issues and then the problem went away.
