Filemaker 14 gives "spinning wheel of death"?

Greetings from Japan!


We upgraded to Filemaker 14 after using Filemaker 11 for many years, and there's a lot to love in the new Filemaker, especially the scripting improvements. One thing I'm not a fan of, however, is the seemingly random way all our clients get a hang up, which involves the computers getting the "spinning wheel of death" that requires that Filemaker be force quit and re-opened. The main problem is that we've got a few scripts that need to run for 1-2 hours, opening websites and checking for problems, and I like to leave them running when I leave work, but when I come back the next morning I'll generally have a frozen Filemaker with beach ball of death.


My question is, are random hang-ups a feature of Filemaker 14, or could we have some fundamental issue on our end we need to track down? It's very random and happens 1-2 times a day to all employees, supposedly. There's no pattern I can identify.


Any advice you have would be greatly appreciated.
