I'm running Elementary OS Freya.

Since last version 7.0, Xmind crash on startup.

It shows the Splash Page, open the main program, the computer to be sluggish and after some seconds (~15-30 sec). It logout from my session (close all program), and show my login page.

on logs /home/user/.xmind/workspace-cathy/.metadata/.log
