icon Hold Import Hangs (+1)  
In the latest beta (from this post), if I already have a hold installed and I try to either import or download a different version (older or newer), the import progress hangs at the "importing data" stage with a tiny sliver of the bar filled, so that I must force-close the program. Importing/downloading new holds has no such problem, so deleting the hold is a workaround, but obviously not an ideal one.

This issue was also present in the version from this post; I downloaded the next version after mainly to check whether it had been fixed by that one.

I don't know whether this is important, but it sometimes fills up an entire yellow bar while saying "importing data", then starts up a new bar and hangs with only a sliver of that. And in this case, despite hanging, it looks like the import was actually successful? That is, after force-closing the program and reopening it, I noticed that it's now the newer version that I was trying to import.

I had a similar issue when updating a hold in 5.1.1.371, but in my case, DROD crashed altogether. After restarting the game, it appeared that the hold had imported successfully, but I had lost all my progress. The hold was Beethro's Teacher, if it makes a difference.

I was able to export my player file from JtRH and successfully imported it into 5.1.1 to recover my progress, though DROD crashed again when trying to import a more recent player file.

Just adding a bit more information. I don't think this is a problem with the hold update process per se, but with importing progress after the update. The process completed successfully in 5.1.0.6512, but fails in 5.1.1.371. I've tried importing player files from older versions and also importing progress via cloud sync, but DROD crashes every time. I suppose that could be caused by something other than Beethro's Teacher, though. My 2.x player file imports without a problem.
