Blizzard Launcher Freeze - MacOSX 10.6.8

Mac Technical Support
As title suggests, running Diablo 3 on MacOSX 10.6.8.

Roughly 50% of the time I run Diablo 3 the launcher will freeze before the Diablo Setup windows pops up saying "Launching Blizzard Launcher". Instead nothing happens and the app requires a forced quit.
Bumping this as its still happening.
Can you post your full specS?

    1. Hold the 'Option' Key and choose System Profiler/Information from the Apple Menu.

    2. Copy the information from the following sections:
  • Hardware (remove the Serial Number line)

Also, you may want to try some basic permission repair to see if this helps.

I haven't noticed it occurring for a while, I think there's since been a patch and I've also done some tinkering on my end so I'm assuming it was my own software conflict.

Cheers.

I was having the Blizzard Launcher hangup this morning, and repairing the disk permissions seems to have cleared it up!
