It hangs up seemingly at random

You probably want to supply details, like platform and 32-bit vs. 64-bit and so on.

On a Mac you can "sample" the Lightroom process to get a stack trace of hung process.

Also, try restarting your computer, and if that doesn't help, then re-install Lightroom.

Most people are not having this problem, so to get anywhere you may need to help identify what is "special" in your case.

We'll also need to know what you're doing at the time, in order to try to replicate it. I haven't seen any hangs, but I've heard a couple of other people complain in the last couple of days, so it would be good to get it tracked down.

I have the same problem.
It hangs at startup. Shows the splash screen, then the grid on my left screen, the main panel on my right and goes unresponsive.
No problems with the previous version. When I upgraded, it hangs repeatedly.
I have uninstalled and re-installed.
I find when I delete the properties file, it restarts ok, but then hangs on next restart.
I am running windows 7 (up to date), dual screen off a nvidia 8800 GT card. My catalog and images are all on local discs. I have the latest nvidia drivers.

Sounds like a bad plug-in. Try disabling all third-party plug-ins.
