If it helps, I saw this also on Artemis (OS X 10.10.3).  When I opened Artermis it asked to restore from an autosave, and then hung.  This continued until I deleted ~/.horae and now it is fine.

You'll lose your list of recently accessed files and any modifications to the configuration you may have made.  But I can think of at least one recent situation where Athena got confused by a corrupted file in that folder.  Maybe that's the problem....?
