Sublime text editor: opening a second file causes the "waiting" cursor

When I'm using Sublime text editor and open a new file, I get "opening..." in task bar that just sits there forever, and the cursor turns into the "waiting" type cursor that's just a round circle. The file opens fine in sublime in a new tab. How do I stop this taskbar and cursor thing from happening? It's really annoying.

Distro is Linux Mint 14.1 Mate

Edit: Turns out it was doing with multiple apps, but I ended up using Pluma text editor, and it does not do it with that one, so think I'll just stick with that editor.

i love sublimetext (with package manager), it's my all time favorite. is trying to replace it and very close.

maybe something is corrupt within the file, or maybe it's just huge. i hope you give sublime a second chance.
