Mac UI interference while FMP14 is processing in background

Something new to 14 that had not been an issue in previous versions for me was that when I have a long script running in the background on FMP, it interferes with the front application a lot, in particular, when typing.  The characters get delayed or don't come out at all.  This is happening on FMP 14.0.1 and connected to a FMS 14.0.1.204 server using a Mac Pro with Mac OS X 10.10.3.  It is rather annoying since it keeps me from easily doing other work while FMP is working away at even something simple like a long replace.  Unfortunately for one client, the server is remote and on a slow connection, which means my pain experience is prolonged while things process.  I've found myself logging in using 13.0v9 frequently just to avoid this problem so I can work in other programs while running a big job.  And obviously it is making me write more scripts that perform on server.  But it just seems a backwards step from previous versions. 

 

Are other people noticing this?  How about on Windows?
