"Open with" delay

There's a serious bug in the latest version (9.0.6 running on macOS 10.15.3) that has persisted throughout the last several versions. Right-clicking a file and choosing "Open with" triggers a delay of several seconds (on a Core i9) before any options are even highlighted and selectable. Strangely, the length of the delay seems to be a function of how long Path Finder has been running. Quitting and restarting the program causes it to behave normally with no delay. After Path Finder has been running for some time, the delays become interminable.
