I don't think your problem is fixed. It sounds like you're getting the dreaded VisualPrefs deadlock. VisualPrefs has a problem where it can cause a deadlock if it tries to update the screen at the exact same time another program is updating the screen - especially when opening a window during startup when icons are drawn/updated.

To avoid the deadlock at startup, make sure you don't have a program that opens a window - at least until after WB is completely loaded and icon refresh is done. I had to stop using a titlebar clock in WBstartup because about 10% of the time I got the deadlock.

I still get the deadlock occasionally when I start a program and a requester from another program pops up at the same time, but this only happens rarely. (interestingly, MUI programs never cause a deadlock)
