Problem with PF10 on MacMini 2020 running Big Sur 11.6.1

On my M1 MacMini 2020 running Big Sur, PF9.4 works without any problems. However PF 10 becomes unresponsive with spinning beach ball whenever I click twice on the title of one of the columns in the PF browser window. I then hav e to force quit PF and re-launch it. Restarting the MacMini, deleting and reinstalling PF10 with new download fails to solve the problem.
This problem does not exist on my MacBook Air 2020 also running Big Sur 11.6.1

    Hi there,

    Mary from Path Finder support here!

    Could you please check whether the CPU rises once you launch your Path Finder?

    Best Regards,

    CPU shows no significant rise after launching PF 9.4 or PF 10.2 on my MacMini (now running Monterey): with both versions, the %CPU idle remains 94-96%.

    Problem persists with MacOS 12.0.1amf PF 10.2
    PF10 hangs with spinning beach ball when any column is clicked on twice - to sort Name Column, to sort Date Created column, etc. Only solution is to quit PF with either Activity Monitor or Command-Option-Escape..
