Scrivener freezing during quit and backup process

I am having the same problem described here of scrivener freezing when I try to quit, or close the project.

I get the wheel of death and it can take up to 30 minutes to close if I do not force quit. It takes longer if I have been working on the document longer.

I followed the suggestions above (ie I opened a new project) and it closed easily,

I also used the activity monitor when I got the wheel of death and I retrieved the attached sample.

Any suggestions?

Thank you in advance.

What version of Scrivener do you have, and with which version of Mac OS?
