Flash-Tool in GUI locks up on Mac

I am using FlashTool (the chip icon in the GUI) to download .bin and .axf files to both an LPCxpresso LPC1114 board and to a custom board with LPC1768.  All of these have the same behavior:  I select the file, verify the proper CPU architecture, then click OK and am presented with a progress bar that never progresses.

From the shell I am able to see the command that lpcxpresso uses to flash (crt_emu_lpc11_13_nxp or crt_emu_cm3_nxp), and if I run it manually from the shell then it seems to complete fine.  Not sure what the GUI is waiting on.  in the shell ps -ax shows that the the flash programmer is still running, although if I copy/paste the exact same command to the shell prompt it runs and exits fine.

LPCxpresso version is 5.0.14, and I am running on a Mac.  Any suggestions on how to further debug this?
