Timeouts on Macos proxmark3 client

Using the PM3 on a Mac, I recently noticed that whenever I compile the proxmark3 client with gui support, communications seem to become a lot less reliable: lots of timeouts waiting for the proxmark to answer, some commands failing, etc.

If compiling the proxmark3 client without gui support, everything works great. If there are other Mac users out there, could you run that test (run with code compiled for gui support, then run with code compiled withtout gui support) and report on this thread?

The clearest symptom: start the client, do a "hf search" with a HF card on the reader. It should work fine. Then wait 30 seconds to 1 minute doing nothing: on the gui build, any new commands will either fail with a timeout, or work only occasionally. On a text-only build, everything will continue working as normal.

Looking forward to your feedback
