Error running Crossover on OSX Yosemite

When running a windows application (Enterprise Architect 11) and after updating to OSX Yosemite, there are always 7 icons visible in the dock.

One Icon is CrossOver Office. The second one is Enterprise Architect. The third through seventh are folder-icons are references to "$HOME/Applications/CrossOver/Contents/SharedSupport/CrossOver/bin".

I've experienced that, too.
This only occurs when using codeweaver's own windowing system, which lags as hell in MS Office 2010. (Why is that? I thought it was supposed to be a better replacement for X window system)
Edit: It stopped lagging magically when i upgraded to Yosemite. Anyway, flickering now occurs when scrolling or dragging, but not as bad as with X window system.

When using old X Window system, everything works smooth and those folder icons do not appear.
Yet, with X, when dragging programs across the screen they flicker badly. Also, you can clearly see when screen is redrawn as the new image rolls from top to bottom.

Same here - when using the old X Window System the additional/unneccessary icons are gone but the redrawing is _very_ slow (too slow to get some work done, really).

I'm encountering the folder icons as well (with the same reference to $HOME/Applications/CrossOver/Contents/SharedSupport/CrossOver/bin).

Same here. I've tried to run FTPRush and it was like 22 icons opened, causing a huge CPU usage and referred to the same /bin file. It seems it's a huge bug! It's because of Quartz? (X11)

No, this is because of the Mac Driver I think, the X11 window system seems to work fine.

(My bad! I just started a similar thread ...)

I can't pretend to understand the 'explanations' given so far - I just wonder if anyone has a solution or workaround?

This is known issue with running older versions of Crossover on OS X Yosemite. We have fixed this with Crossover 14 which officially adds support for Yosemite.
