Power BI Desktop Freezes when changing Data type

Desktop keeps freezing about every third or fourth time I change the Data type of a column.  It acts as if a modal dialog is up - but there isn't (or it's hidden).  The only solution is killing the Power BI Desktop task loosing any work since the last save.

Turns out this isn't specific to changing Data type.  It just happened again by selecting an invalid Sort by column, then clicking OK to the dialog.  After clicking OK, froozen.

Creating a custom column:
Calculated duration between two events in DateTime (output in minutes)

Created a custom colum out of that value (durationminutes / 60)

Changed data type to TIME ... GAME-OVER
