The logs in all of your crash reports show the screens going to sleep and waking up. On some systems (including yours), macOS apparently reconfigures the displays upon waking up. This leads to crashes that look very similar to this other bug report.

Assuming this bug does have the same underlying cause as the other one, it's fixed in Vuo 2.4.1.

If anyone still sees "A plug-in is not responding" errors or crashes with an FxPlug exported from Vuo 2.4.1 or later, please let us know.
