Photoshop freezes while saving tiff files bigger than 2Gb.

The following steps will freeze photoshop CC 2015.0.1
1. Create and save image as tiff file with size 2Gb and more
2. Make changes to the file
3. Save it
4. Run image processor before "the document is bigger than 2GB" dialog box appears (I save tiff files from the Image processor)

Photoshop will reeze.
It's a real world situation from my practice, I have experienced the problem many times.

why are you trying to run image processor before the file is done saving?

I run image processor to send the images in another format for my clients. I can run processor for whole batch of images but one unsaved image will freeze Photoshop in the middle of processing. I think this makes sense since photoshop allowed saving in background.
