Affects Version/s: Minecraft 13w38a, Minecraft 13w38b, Minecraft 13w38c
Fix Version/s: Minecraft 1.7.2
Debian 7 with Linux Kernel 3.2.0-4-amd64
Can't see any errors in the console- everything is exactly like normal until:
Client> OpenAL initialized.
Then it hangs for an extremely long time and both the Launcher and Minecraft window appear to be frozen; the close button won't do anything.
However once I get into the actual game everything works fine.
Once I click "Quit Game" on the main menu, both windows freeze.
If I kill the Minecraft process at any time, the launcher window un-freezes.
Selecting any older versions from the Launcher works perfectly (and takes 3 seconds to launch)... I don't even need to restart the launcher.
