    Repro for Ubuntu 12.04

    Freemind version: 0.9.0+dfsg-1ubuntu0.1

    java -version
    java version "1.7.0_07"

    Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM (build 23.3-b01, mixed mode)

    Screenshot of message and point of hang (nothing changes after message is dismissed or confirmed): http://i.imgur.com/Ch3ht.png

    I have no idea where my mind map is stored. I checked .freemind in my home directory, but no related files there I believe.

    The information you have provided is not sufficient for reproducing and fixing the problem.

    Could you please attach the log file saved after you have seen the described behavior? You can find it under <user home directory>/.freemind/

    for Windows C:\Documents and Settings\&lt;user name>\.freemind\ for Linux under /home/<user name>/.freemind
    for MacOS under /Users/<user name>/.freemind

    in ~/.freemind/auto.properties
    - value "lastOpened" and "onStartIfNotSpecified" is " MindMap\:/home/stof/03_Projekte/04_CaseStudies/SeeSchiffAG/0_Werbung/SeeSchiffAG_Stakeholder.mm"
    - run freemind > hang up

    when in ~/.freemind/auto.properties
    - value for "lastOpened" and "onStartIfNotSpecified" is deleted, freemind is starting with an empty mindmap, without hang up.
    if then the file "SeeSchiffAG_Stakeholder.mm" is opening, converting window is showed > yes > SeeSchiffAG_Stakeholder.mm is showed correct.

    thanks for fixing

    The problem is your JDK. OpenJDK doesn't work ok with setVisible from Dialog. It is called we is trying to open diferent version documents. Pretty sure is a bug form OpenJDK. One solution is to check JVM, and if it is OpenJDK, we supress this functionality.
