I'm working with a fresh installation of QGIS 2.16.2 on Ubuntu 16.04. I loaded QGIS, went to Processing -> Options -> Providers -> Activated R and QGIS froze for a few seconds.
The same happened when I installed the Processing plugin ntv2 datum transformations and tried to activate it.
[processing] fix app freeze when closing options dialog (fixes #15550)

- Status changed from Closed to Reopened
I observed a similar issue...initially on 2.16.0. un xubuntu 14.04
I then installed just now 2.16.2 and the issue remains.
when committing any change (activate or de-activate provider) to the Processing / Options panel clicking "OK" to save and return to operations, the panel freezes for several seconds (I didn't time it, but could go up to 1-2 minute freeze).
eventually the panel will close and the application will keep on running regularly.
