Maybe it's a known bug but these are the steps to reproduce it, at least in my system (mac)
1 - file - new (Untitled window)
2 - type something
3 - save - give a name like "test"
4 - file - duplicate
5 - hit enter - new window = Untitled (test copy)
6 - save - use same previous name = (test)
7 - warning about replacing previous file.
8 - Hit replace.
(you now have two windows with same name/file open)
9 - wait 5 seconds

from this point on, Scapple no longer respond...spinning wheel, etc, etc. force quit....I tried deleting lib/app support files, etc.

Any clues? thanks

Tried the same thing in TextEdit, got the same response. So it looks like this is a bug with auto-save that needs to be reported to Apple.
