Any solution?
Go back to Sierra if you can? PT itself isn't even tested/okayed by Avid for HS.

Yes, tbh High Sierra isn’t ready for any professional use, there are several problems coming to light with it. That being said, by .1 or .2 they’ll have it sorted so I will have a look at this soon and see what’s going wrong.

1.6.19 up now.

Trashing is now loads quicker due to a trivial optimisation opportunity that was missed. Also fixed one occasional cause of Nil Object Exceptions.

1.6.20 up now.

Tracking down a couple more potential nil-dereferences. If you're getting any "nil object exceptions", post here or email me. Especially if you can narrow down circumstances where it occurs.

It’s an absolute pleasure. It’s quite a simple bit of software but seems to be quite popular and useful which is rather cool. Still need to make plans for the next major version!

Cheers,
Pete

Allow me to add my thanks for keeping this utility going. Whenever people need to trash prefs & databases I refer them to your s/w which is a lot easier than trying to find the appropriate folders.
