Steps:
1. Create a smart collection
2. Use Slideshow module to export as Video, 1080p
3. Whilst export is in progress, stop this by using x next to progress indicator
4. When progress bar disappears, edit the Identity plate on the Intro screen

Problem 1 - Can't create slideshow with same name
A. Export as Video, 1080p, same filename, states file in use
- There are no files in the target folder, visible or hidden

Problem 2 - Can't quit Lightroom
A. From Main Lightroom menu select Quit
B. Quit Greys out
C. 40 (forty, four zero) minutes later, still running and using c60-70% of CPU
D. On right click of Lr Icon - Quit is still available as option but has no effect
F. Force quit and restart get message about catalog not consistent

This is on:
Mac - OSX - 10.11.1
Lightroom - 2015.2.1

Hi Stephen, Did this work for you in prior versions or is this a new problem to 2015.2.1?

1. What was different this time was doing other stuff while the slideshow was being created, so; imports, move files and develops.

2. I've certainly quit slideshow in prior versions with no problems that I recall

3. I have vague memory of getting message before about file existing and that would have to have been prior version. In these circumstances I think I exited and it behaved normally, then restarted Lr

4. I just tried:
a. Open Lr, start show, stop show production and exit - Ok
b. Open Lr, start show, quit, edit Id plate while show is still stopping, restart slideshow (don't get message about files), stop again and exit Lr - no problems

So I'm thinking its some interaction with the other stuff I was doing while the show was being produced.

NB: When I first started used 2015.2.1 it crashed on every exit whatever I'd done. I 'cured' this by turning off reporting of usage statistics.

I think it might be best to roll back to 2015.1.1. The team is rolling back some changes that cause instability. Try that and see if you're having the same issues: http://blogs.adobe.com/lightroomjourn...
