Console.app freezes on launch
Authored by: gasmanmark on Jun 24, '10 11:06:00AM

I have been having this issue for at least a year.
Deleting the log files is only a temporary fix. The delayed startup comes back quite quickly despite /private/var/log/asl/ not having filled up again significantly.
I suspect the underlying problem is something else.
I'd be interested to know if anyone has a more permanent solution.

There are multiple possible causes for this issue, I suggest you have a look trough the log files to find a clue to whats causing your issue. I recently serviced a computer with runaway asl log files (51GB!), turns out the issue was due to some severely damaged permissions on the disk that where spamming the log files with read/write errors.
