DPP 4.7.x abnormally slow on macos (Sierra and High Sierra)

I am trying to use DPP 4.7.x on two macs using sierra and high sierra, with the same results. 

After the first few minutes the application turn so slow that even trying to open a menu, or switch a tab in the tools palette takes literally *minutes* with the cursor spinning the beach ball.


I have seen people saying DPP was slow, but this is not even the same league. It takes me in the neighborhood of 20 minutes to open and export a *single* image. Then operation themselves are reasonably fast, but then the application stops reacting for minutes. Sometimes even clicking on the background, then back in DPP is enough to watch it spin for minutes.


Both the machines are reasonably specced, there's plenty of RAM, 16GB each with over 10 unused. CPU is shown as idle while the cursor is spinning. Nothing relevant on the console. So it must be some interaction with other software I am using or a bug I am triggering. Just can't figure out where to start looking.


It's a shame because I really look how DPP renders colors.
