Default Crash while saving

This problem seems to occur in both the pre-release and the release candidate.

I have had quite a few crashes lately while Reaper is saving a session.

Here's the symptoms:

1) The manual saves or Reaper is preforming an automatic save.
2) The user hits a key command or tries to trigger an action while Reaper is in the middle of saving.
3) Reaper locks up then force crashes itself.

I believe the problem is that Windows does not know which thread it is supposed to trigger, the save or the new command. The conflict causes reaper to lock up and then Windows force crashes the whole app.

Reaper usually finishes saving the session before it crashes. So, no work is really lost, just a major annoyance having to wait 5 mins for the session to reload.

I think the easiest solution would be for there to be a preference check box or default option that disables actions and key commands while reaper is saving. Basically if the user hits a key command reaper just straight up blocks the action and doesn't make an undo step for that action.

I'm not sure what that issue is, but I don't think that diagnosis is correct. Do you get crash reports when saving? Is some plug-in showing UI during the save?

I don't want to be 'that guy,' but I spent about 45 minutes yesterday trying every different combination of stretch-marker settings, and found *very little* improvement, if any. 0ms was still causing timing sync errors (on all settings, I think), even the soloist and efficiency settings.

I've noticed when saving a session there is a few seconds where Reaper freezes before resuming. Been doing this since 5.983

Reaper current version:

Bug: Wrong representation of the note position in score.
Maybe I have done something wrong but it seems a bug to me.
Just in case, I'll be grateful if any of you can check if you have the same issue Ty

Notes (from bottom to top):

First Measure:

Second Measure (it's the same chord one semitone down):

[I don't know if it is important: w10, monitor 32, 2560x1440]

Can anyone confirm I am not wrong?

Having G# G# instead of G G#, as in the above example, seems to me a big notation problem.

I installed v5.984 this morning, and immediately my Apogee Duet Firewire couldn't playback from Reaper. I had no problem switching to my internal laptop speakers. I switched back to v5.983 and everything worked again.

MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2014)
macOS v10.14.6
Apogee Maestro v2.10.2
