I have noticed the Splash Screen being displayed two or three times during startup of Lr Classic 8.3 along with (not responding). My OS is Windows 10.

The problem seems to be easier to replicate when launching Lr in the Library showing the grid view.

In Preferences, the "Show splash screen during startup" option needs to be enabled.

Here are my steps to reproduce the problem:

Launch Lr Classic 8.3 and when the splash screen goes off, click on the interface - I've been clicking on a blank area of the menu bar.

The splash screen briefly shows again and Lr shows (not responding) while the splash screen is visible.

After a few more seconds, the splash screen is displayed for the third time and Lr shows (not responding) again.

Waiting for a further short while, the splash screen goes off again and Lr resumes initialising itself.
