wiping free disk space

Please Wait. BleachBit 1.8 on Windows 7 never finishing


Short Version: BleachBit 1.8 on Windows 7 doesn't finish, stays stuck at "Please wait. Wiping free disk space. About 0 minutes remaining."

I hope this hasn't been addressed, but after about an hour of poking around on Launchpad and here I've come up blank, so here goes.

I've been using BleachBit for years on Linux machines and used to see a problem where the application just seemed to stall out on wiping disk space. That hasn't been an issue on Linux for some time, but I recently installed BleachBit 1.8 on a Windows 7 laptop, and am seeing that problem again.
