GRAMPS freezes and crashes

There have been multiple reports of long freezes and crashes of GRAMPS when refreshing the people view, e.g. after editing a person or changing the Name Display Format. They are related to the use of GNOME Assistive Technologies (ATK/GAIL). If you experience similar problems try going into System -> Preferences -> Assistive Technologies, unchecking "Enable assistive technologies" and logging out and in again.
