I am having an issue with platformio and vscode on mac. I am running vscode 1.21, mac version 10.13.3 and pio latest. The issue is that at random times, the gui seems to be unresponsive. What happens is that i cannot do a commit, and the platformio toolbar becomes unresponsive, meaning i cant build, upload, clean, etc. what i notice is that the process called “Code Helper” shoots up in activity monitor to between 50 - 100% and if i force quit that, i get “extension host terminated unexpectedly” and if i restart extension host, platformio restarts and works normally. i cant seem to put a finger on whats causing this to start. i did a sample process before i force quit and it doesnt look right, though im not 100% sure waht im looking at. i can upload for you if you let me know where.
this happens every few minutes and is 100% repeatable for me. i tried delete vscode and reinstalling, and reinstalling platformio.
