Alfred 2 flaky with Yosemite on my Mac

I have notice erratic behavior in Alfred since the advent of Yosemite.  Quite often it hangs and does not respond.  The most recent situation resulted in Alfred never responding.  I was not able to quit it in the conventional way so I force quite from activity monitor.  After doing so I am left with this in terminal:

 

[mdivince-mac] ~ > ps -ef | grep Alfred
  501   353     1   0  8:29PM ??         0:00.00 (Alfred 2)
  501   429   353   0  8:29PM ??         0:00.00 (Alfred Remote Se)
  501 23267 23159   0 10:02AM ttys000    0:00.00 grep Alfred
 
 
Still unable to quite these processes with sudo kill -9 and when I try to restart Alfred I receive the following error message:  "Alfred2 is not running anymore".  I am running the mist recent version of Alfred.  I was eventually able to restart Alfred after waiting long enough.

A significant portion of Alfred's users are on Yosemite and I haven't heard of issues such as this. This sounds like a deeper rooted issue in Yosemite than Alfred as Alfred wouldn't do anything to prevent you from force quitting him. Next time this happens, try sampling the Alfred 2 process in Activity Monitor which may give an indication of where this issue is happening on your Mac.

 

Did you upgrade to Yosemite or do a fresh install? Also, you could try creating a new user account and trying Alfred from there (to rule out something on your main account causing this).
