    The System Preferences seems to freeze when pressing the lock icon.


    When in 'System Preferences/Users & Groups'
    Pressing the 'lock' icon causes the system preferences to freeze and requires a force quit.

    This is not only in Users&Groups, but wherever a lock icon is present.

    I've tried clearing the Cache and Preferences folder, but no luck.
    System Preferences is not running in 32-bit mode.

    Please advise.
