I let it run for a while, and it produced about 250mb of traffic, but even after a restart the block count has NOT changed.

I'm at a loss here now.. This seems to be a bug.

You should also try a chain server http://wiki.bitshares.org/index.php/BitShares/Chain-Server
for downloading the blockchain. Try liondani's or wackou's servers for syncing ..
when you made the changes in the config and restarted the terminal client you will see something with "fast download" .. if you see "P2P" then the chain server might be offline ..

That's the last thing that may help here for syncing

I tried  delegate.nathanhourt.com's chainserver yesterday, and it was fine until the client reached 70%, then it switched to p2p and was stuck there shortly after.

I setup 185.25.22.21:1375 (liondani) now, and will let you know if this works better. It's downloading from scratch now.

No luck. Still stuck. Doesn't seem to work on my iMac.

I'll try it on my laptop with my old wallet.

Can you show the output of the terminal .. from the startup until you see ">>>"?

I don't understand, but the client is sycned now.. I let it run for a few hours unattended and it did the job. However, the frontend it seemed stuck at this specific block.. very bad user experience.

Thank you xeroc!!

I see .. the status bar at the lower end of the GUI window is stuck although the client is synced (checked via console of the advanced menu?)

That may indeed be a bug ..
Thanks for taking the time to track it down!

Even the block count in "get_info" is stuck, and does not show progress. Suddenly, it was synced after hours.
