Oscilloscope hangs on some commands.

Hello

I'm trying to log two channels from a DSOX3014A to a file on a USB device using the Command Expert.

My problem is that the oscilloscope hangs on some commands, the buttons does not respond to new commands or buttons/switches and needs a power cycle to work. Agilent Connection Expert also looses the connection. In some (1 of ~8) hangs, a power cycle of the oscilloscope doesn't help and the PC must also be restarted.

From my debugging so far it seems like commands like
:TRIGger:SWEep NORMal
or
:TIMebase:RANGe 5

makes the command 
:WAVeform:DATA?
fail with the message
VI_ERROR_TMO: A timeout occurred | SCPI connection attempt timed out

I updated the firmware a few days ago, but I'm new to this way of controlling the oscilloscope, so I may have some "obvious" fault in Command Expert...

Have attached a screenshot of Command Expert.
