LIGHTROOM 4.2
When I make adjustments,Brush tool, HSL color adjusts, etc. The image I am working on "blanks out" /disappears, and loading shows up. Each stroke I apply. If I am in Erase mode for the brush, it resets to the Add mode. This is a major problem for me. I have been using LR since v3.

This is a clean install of an i7x64bit machine
SSD M4 boot drive
SSD Swap for PS
another SSD for pagefile
16GB ram
3.6Ghz cpu with GeForce GTX460 2gb ram video card
LR Catalog is on SSD boot drive. Files are on Intel servers (80mb sustained)

Odd thing is that I did a full clean re install of OS and programs a week ago, and I think in the mids of it, there is the 4.2 update. Is anyone else experiencing the Blanking out?

It is unbearable to work like this.

Consider re-installing Lightroom, and delete ACR cache & previews, and rename prefs file. Also, consider trying a different graphics interface/driver.

(I am not experiencing the problem)

I reinstalled and things look like they are loading faster. I am seeing the catalog missing the link to servers, but once I link them up, the images are loading faster.
