BeaTunes hangs cursor every click…

While I await a reply to my Recognition & Longevity post, I tried to run BeaTunes 5.1.11.
It synced. I did not initiate Analysis or Inspection. Just left it alone while I grapple with the decision whether or not this is a solid replacement for iTunes on a Mac.
Then I noticed that every time I clicked my mouse everything would hang for a good minute. Pretty annoying.
Killed apps one by one, and once I force-quit BeaTunes there is no more delay.
Seems odd. Is there a setting to avoid this conflict?

    Hey there,

    Are you on macOS and have media keys enabled?

    If so, please disable them. There is a bug in a third party library that causes these hangs. See for details.
