SQ4 Build 109 - After more than 10 hours of continuous strategy building, SQ4 slows the whole system down considerably. After stopping the build, clearing memory (which was less than 50% of the allowed 120 GB), and restarting the build had no effect. Exiting SQ4 and re-starting it had a minimal improvement. A windows re-boot was required to restore the program's operation back to normal.

- The mouse does not appear at first then minutes afterwards, functionality returns very slowly but never recovers completely.
- The generation of strategies slowed from over 40,000 per hour to about 25,000 per hour.
- Clicking on anything in SQ generates a warning in the top left corner that SQ is not responding. It eventually responds after time.
The only true cure is to re-boot the computer.
