Lightroom Classic slideshows taking forever?

I've been trying to create a slideshow of about 300 photos, which include some large panos, since Sunday night.

This is on a 2017 iMac, 24 GB of RAM, running 11.6. Latest update of LRC for Mac OS.

It's staying aroud 65-70% CPU. No disk activity whatsoever and there's no indication of status or progress in the Slideshow Module so I'm not sure what it's doing.

This is a Create Saved Slideshow operation. When I click Preview or Play, it shows a status bar that never moved. Otherwise the UI isn't showing anything happening.

I presume it will save some kind of movie file with the slide show and various effects and transitions?

Has anyone else seen it take so long to produce slideshows?  It's going on 48 hours!
