As long as you don't made any changes to the shell extension and/or the
external cache...

That looks like a deadlock! Wonder where that is...

The nightlies didn't work this week, so it wouldn't have shown up if the
problem is with the chache saving/loading. And the task-tray change
today didn't cause me any problems so far.

Does it deadlock too if you don't add the cache to the autostart?
