I have the same problem.  Starting up Aquatics will either bring up a window or hang forever, apparently randomly.

A couple of observations, which may or may not be relevant:
 - Hang occurs also without startup files.
 - The same problem occurs with ordinary Emacs.
 - Occurs extremely frequently on a MacMini 2011, hardly ever on a MacMini 2014.  In other words, seems to be related to the computer's speed (a timeout somewhere?).
 - Seems to occur more frequently on a MacMini with multiple screens, or if I move window focus.
