Play hangs at start up with 100% cpu

Recently Play has started to hang on startup with 100% cpu, the window never shows up, and I have to force quit the app to end it... :(
I tried to delete my library, and also to install a newer unstable version, but sadly, that did not change anything ..

I would like to start using Play again, should I send you some logs or something so you could look into the problem, (and how would I go about doing that?)..?
Or do you already know about this problem?

edit: and yeah , I´m on a C2D MacBook ...

hoping for some help here.. (as of now I have to use itunes :( )


PS. If I could request a feature; I would like untagged files to appear with their filename/path
(in reverse,with the filename coming first ex. : something.mp3/abbey road/beatles/music/me)
instead of just nothing.
It´s really difficult to clean up your library the way things are now..
I would be great for mass tagging untagged files.

Have you tried deleting the preference file?
~/Library/Preferences/org.sbooth.Play.plist

You can add a "Filename" column, right-click (or control-click) on the column labels or choose in the the View menu (in the latest unstable versions).
