Vienna hangs when refreshing feed

Postby rooma » Tue Mar 16, 2010 10:21 am


I noticed that Vienna hangs for a while when I refresh the feed from blog community.

I don't know if it's related to Vienna or if it's an issue with this particular feed (which does not pass the W3C RSS validator btw).

Here's the feed:

Whenever I refresh it, I got the spinning ball of death and Vienna uses a lot of CPU. I goes back to normal pace after a while (approx 3 mins).

The problem occurs with both the latest Vienna 2.4 and the 2.5 Beta (, running on Mac 10.5.8.

Huh, weird. I'll look at this. Thanks for the report.

I started having similar problems with random feeds just a few days ago. The only software update I did about the time the problems started was updating to Office 2008 12.2.4. The problem definitely started before I updated to Safari 4.0.5 (which might have affected WebKit).
