Frequent crashes/hangs importing wav files
My team has been having considerable difficulty importing audio for the past several months.
If we try to import more than a couple wav files at a time, the editor frequently hangs and stops responding. Other times, it crashes altogether.
This is happening on 3 of our computers in 3 different locations (different networks).
We suspect it might have something to do with our source control (dreamhost using tortoise), but it only seems to be a problem with audio.
We're losing a lot of time because of this. I submitted the crash I just got now.

Sorry, my team was just getting these hangs/crashes so frequently and under different circumstances that I just assumed it was a widespread issue.
I spent some time digging in to it some more. I was getting hangs in a variety of different conditions. Basically, here's what I would do:
1) Grab 5+ wav files 2) Drag them in to a file of your choice (doesn't seem to matter where). 3) After dropping them in, you'll hang after a few seconds.
All this said, I did disable my source control and was no longer to reproduce the issue. So, I'm not certain if it's only OUR particular source control (dreamhost/tortoise), but again, I can't reproduce when I disconnect source control in the editor. It is worth noting that we get the same issue across my team in different locations, with different internet setups and hardware configurations.

Would you mind taking a look at our How to Report a Bug forum sticky post to get an idea of the information we will request when submitting a bug report.
I am going to need some reproducible steps and some more information in order to enter an accurate report for this issue. Information like the length, format, and type of audio files you are importing will all help add to the robustness of the report.
If you have other questions or concerns please let me know.
