Default Persistent \"Clicking\" on tracks. PT7 bug?

Hi all, since upgrading to PT7 I've come across this twice now. I have a fairly large session, trying to finish up a film project and every time I open the session now, there are 3 tracks that have this clicking on them. Wasn't happening before. It registers on the PT meters and sounds like if a piece of paper was hitting a fan slowly and constantly. The only remedy in this session that I've found is to duplicate those 3 tracks and then delete the originals. Clicking goes away, at least for now. If I BTD, they'll be in the bounce. I've tried Reinstalling PT, running Disk Warrior and Disk Utility, making sure my plugins are updated etc...

Could this be a DSP isue? I am taxing the system pretty well. Every time I try to create any additional send or outputs now it deactivates and reactivates the plug/sends. That might not be so good.

Anyone else seen this? Suggestions?

I have a feeling this won't go away next week when we're supposed to finish this and I'll be screwed.

Default Re: Persistent \"Clicking\" on tracks. PT7 bug?

if you search my name threads you'll see what a feedback it got here. It also includes Digi responds to this topic.
There are many helpfull things out there but in short you can do following:
1. PT 7.2 is very RAM hungry, so having 2.5 GB of RAM or more is good idea. Especially it's important if you work with AS plug-ins (try it and you'll get why)
2. PT 7.2 became very capricious program, comparing to previous versions. You must be ALL plug-ins updated, and pay attention to Waves particulary.
Try not using Waves at all or at least avoid their Delay and Reverbs - from my experience they coused spikes and clicks.
3. Install CS2 update.
After all this done delete databases.
