Not necessarily related but you should Certify the disc. You can do that in the disk utility. In my experience when the computer is misbehaving like that one possible explanation is that the hard drive is going bad. S.M.A.R.T. is a system the hard drive has that it helps you warn you of a HD going bad so you can take action before it does.
There is also a free utility called Onyx that I run once a week and it checks as well as optimize my MAC and will detect many issues.
Hope that helps and that you can get Accordance working soon.
