Consistent crashes of VP18 (repro) with playing and S-cuts

When editing MP3 320kpbs audio on the main time line VP18 consistently crashes when I play audio while doing S-cuts and remove sections of audio. VP18 will continue to play the audio but becomes unresponsive and eventually hangs or comes back after a looong few minutes. This is with auto-ripple ON.

I'd say 99% repro :( so back to the old Ctrl-S routine :(
VP18 Build 284 on Win10.0.18362 Build 18362, looks like I can repro this on VP17 as well ;)

Well... never mind, seems like this is an old favorite :(

Damn, seriously, this has been going on for years and is still not fixed? ouch :(

Although - I can't imagine how to get a reasonably accurate cut while the timeline is running.
I've never longed to be able to do this, and I can't imagine that I could have this need until the end of my life.
So I can understand - at least in my list of requirements - that this is not on level 1 of the developer's priority list.

It probably is on higher priority because this freeze could also appear by deleting one single event while playback is (accidentally) running anywhere else in the timeline. It just needs a more complex project structure.

I close this one here now because cyro has correctly linked to the main topic where many details to this issues are listed. Better join there.
