Starcraft 2 and Resource Stalls

Since the update right before HOTS came out I started seeing my frames drop from 50+ to nothing and then right back.
Also im noticing that if I hover over the menu button it shows Resource stalls.

Anybody else seeing this or have any clue what these resource stalls are?

Its not my computer.
I have a 7950, a PCIe SSD, fiber optic internet connection.

I get loads in the Mac version. Mac Pro 10.6.8, 5870 (PC version). I also get 0 fps in certain locations but otherwise runs 30 fps...much slower than it should though.

I really dont think thats it since it will vary from 2 to 100 a millisecond. and it corresponds when I see my fps tank for a second.
