Lightroom 6.3: Sliders are getting stuck

Since upgrading to Lightroom 6.3 I've been having trouble with dragging sliders around. Specifically, sliders such as Sharpen Amount. When I click and drag with the mouse on my Macbook Pro, the slider won't move any farther than some arbitrary number on the high end of the scale. Maybe the first time I drag it and it gets "stuck" (moving my finger on the touchpad won't move it farther along). I pull back and push my finger along again and it keeps getting stuck. Eventually it will go up to the max value, but it's really frustrating.

The problem seems worse on sliders that have a large computational load involved (like increasing sharpness). A slower operation like that seems to lock the slider when it calculates and then doesn't let the slider continue. New behaviour since the update and it's very annoying!

Ack, sorry, reread.

Does this problem happen with all files? Or files with a lot of local adjustments/spot healing?

It happens even on a "blank" file (a file with no changes yet). Well, that's not quite accurate because I have an import process that gets applied to all photos that tweaks a bunch of settings, but not any local adjustments obviously. But I just tried dragging the Sharpening Amount slider quickly to the right and it stopped locked at 95 instead of going all the way to 150. It seems like in this latest version the computation interferes with the input mechanism and stops paying attention to touchpad input. Like I said, I can get it to go to 150 by using the keyboard or by continually "throwing" the slider to the right. It just tends to have this new locking, "sticky" behaviour that it didn't have previously.
