JBW 2.99 eventual race condition

Been this way for a while, figured I'd finally at least just mention it. After being up for a day or two, JBW will eventually race - high CPU, and either no response, or extremely slow/delayed response from the UI. Killing it and restarting brings it back for a day to three, maybe, but it will, without fail, eventually race again. Been using JBW for a long, long time, and have a dozen or so tabs with saved auctions with pics so I can do historical price research, and a history of my purchases. So, not sure if there is a some sort of threshold of db size, or something else. But it will do it, without failure, every day to three. I can always tell, because the computer is louder due to the high CPU use and fan kick up. It only costs me snipes on occasion, but when it does, grrrrr... usually when I am out.

Computer never goes to sleep, no other programs have a problem, system is stout and rock solid. It is running Windows 10 and Java is 8 r65. Been very reluctant to update it consider JBW is about as old as that release of Java...

    As a follow up, I downloaded the latest version of Java, and so far - so good. 3 days now with no race condition. Will advise in the future but right now, I am cautiously optimistic - 3 days with no JBW lockup is unusual recently, so this might have done the trick. Fingers crossed...

    Another follow-up - still no lock since updating to the latest Java. This combo of Java 8-151 has been very promising, and whereas I was getting constant locks before, no problems now it seems...memory use is notably lower, as is CPU, and no race condition.
