It had a problem (now fixed) loading some plugins like MT Power Drumkit and Unfiltered Audio Sandman which would result in a plugin loading timeout in Bitwig (but not other Daw's).

Thanks. I experience quite often a 'timeout' when Bitwig loads a project. Bitwig will show the 'Loading plugins ...' progress box but will not do any action at all. The progress bar will not move and there will be no disk grinding. In that case I have to killall Bitwig, restart jackd, then restart Bitwig and try again. Most often at the 2nd try Bitwig will load the same project w/o any problem. It's always the first try that has problems. This said, I haven't isolated yet which Windows VST plugin can be the cause of the problem although in any case I wouldn't really want to get rid of that plugin. I wonder if it's the same problem as what you described. I should upgrade linvst and recompile from github.
