Yoshimi doesn't respond to kill signals either, but I can kill -9 it to get my screen back. I'm using ion3 so it'll only take out one section of a split screen, not my whole screen.

One of the links indicated to me what I suspected: that the BadWindow error is pretty much a no-op, and a normal thing with X GUI apps, or unrelated to the lockup.

I'll try just waiting 30-40 seconds and see if the patch loads.

BTW, it loads up instantly in Zyn, and I just laid down the strings track using Zyn without errors or issues, so problem solved from my perspective.

Yoshimi does look a lot nicer though, and seems a lot more CPU efficient.
