I'm working on Avid Media Composer 188.8.131.52 and have been having some weird issues on select projects.
When I open the project it will randomly begin to open what we have been calling a "phantom bin" is create, saved, closes, then opens again and repeats for xxxx amount of minutes/times. (take your best guess it still applies) Preventing you from being able to work in the project until it has finished cycling or doing whatever it is that it is doing.
Some troubleshooting that we have tried or thought might be causing it is an esata drive that we AMAing from - we switch these out regularly as it is what we are storing our footage on.
We have also tried hold down command when opening the project to keep all bins from opening, but it reverts back to the "phantom bin" extravaganza.
We've tried multiple computers. Computers without the esata drive seems to be able to open the projects.
Our system is the latest Mac Pro computers running Mac OS X 10.7.4
