A new version of Morphic was added to project The Inbox:

First take on resolving that "UI process is waiting on a strange semaphore" issue.

I am not sure that such a programming model actually exist in Morphic applications. And CMD+Dot rescues the status quo anyway... maybe trying to fix it will make it worse.
