Angle tool beyond sluggish, rewrites to screen of what it is doing take minutes. Crop angle if changing rotation of image almost as bad. I stop moving pen or mouse on Wacom tablet (actually removing them from the tablet) and the angle tool keeps rewriting it's position. Eventually I have to CMD Z to force the tool to stop.

OSX 10.10.4
Mac Pro
NVIDIA GeForce GT 120 512 MB
2.66 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon
24 GB 1066 MHz DDR3 ECC
Wacom Intuos Pro with mouse and/or pen

Do you see the same without the Wacom (e.g. With a trackpad or USB mouse)?

Interesting.
Unplugged the wacom, used the (terrible) Apple mouse and it seemed to work OK.
Unplugged mouse and re-attached the wacom and it worked OK.

Now, this was a single image. The problem happened when I was working through an edit of 300 shots (RAW, 5DIII) processing and straightening. It did feel like the issue got worse as I moved through the edit, which really, doesn't make sense.

I'll have to see if any better once I do a full edit.

I've had nothing but headaches with the new Wacom since I was forced to "upgrade" from my trusty old grey Wacom as they stopped supporting the old models after the most recent OS X upgrades. Wacom made me go back to use a driver that is 3 generations older than the most recent driver as the tablet was performing so poorly .....

Which driver were you using before you had to roll back? They released a new one (6.3.13-w3) about 3 weeks ago, which may or may not help, but is worth a try.
