We were wondering why all of our scenes take such a very long time to save - even if we delete all data and nodes inside the scene it takes to save forever ! (a scene with nothing in it - you even can't save this scene as .ma)

who do we get rid of all maxwell stuff in our scenes ?
is this a bug or is there a solution for it?
