I'd try dumping LunaSuite, and seeing what happens. I used LS for a while,
and there are a lot of cool things about the app, but it was also buggy as
hell when I ran it, and of course it wasn't ever a truly " finished ",
program. It's a shame too. I exchanged a number of emails with it's creators
and seemed like good guys...
