SoapUI 5.6.0 Locks up on Close - preferences file?

I have an installation of SoapUI 5.6.0 that freezes anytime I try to exit. 

 

I believe the issue is that SoapUI is trying to save user preferences into the "soapui-settings.xml" file but cannot.  Originally there was a java.io.exception due to the soapui-settings.xml file being hidden in the \users\userXXX folder, but after un-hiding it we no longer get the error.  I can edit the file with notepad and save it, so it isn't a user permissions issue.  But attempting to close SoapUI locks the application up and must be killed with Task Manager.  This also loses any work to projects in process.  

 

Have tried reboot.  Then uninstall and reinstall.  Then uninstall, reboot, reinstall reboot, relaunch.  I also tried all that but reinstalling to a newly created folder.  No dice.  

 

Anyone seen this before?
