Cleanup crashes word

I am running the latest version of Wordfast together with Office XP SBE. I have been translating from an excel sheet via Word and whenever I try to perform a cleanup wordfast reports a 100% cleanup before crashing Word (Word freezes / Task Manager reads CPU usage of 60% and Cannot Contact).
When I re-open the doc I am back to my old uncleaned version...while the TM.txt has indeed been updated...
As my translation is safely stored in the Excel file it's not such a major problem, but will I have the same problem translating only in Word?
Is there something that I am missing here? Some setting or command perhaps?

New version 5.53q Jul 3, 2008

A new version (5.53q) has been released a few days ago, which fixes this bug.

Quoted from the official site: "Service release on 5.53: better speed with tagged files with tables, MRAs, etc.
Bug fix: cleaning up files after PPT/XLS translation".

I therefore recommend you download the latest versionicon_wink.gif
