|Product:||[Maemo Official Applications] RSS feed reader||Reporter:||Bartosz Taudul <wolf.pld>|
|Attachments:||Contents of ~/.osso_rss_feed_reader that cause lockup|
SOFTWARE VERSION: 3.2010.02-8 EXACT STEPS LEADING TO PROBLEM: 1. Start RSS reader. 2. Click on the feed list on the left side of the screen. Notice that items can be selected. 3. Wait for a short time (less than 5 seconds). 4. Try to interact with application. EXPECTED OUTCOME: Application can be used. ACTUAL OUTCOME: Application locks up. No interaction with items on the screen is possible. Application doesn't respond to close window events, window manager must forcibly kill it. REPRODUCIBILITY: Always, on certain data sets. So far I have encountered two such data sets. OTHER COMMENTS: RSS reader desktop widget remains usable.

RSS reader stopped hanging today. It was unusable for at least 3 weeks (updates were performed periodically).
Workaround found: when the RSS reader hangs up shortly after starting, close it immediately after it is started. After next start it will work correctly (at least for some time). Also note, that after the second start all feeds immediately start to refresh.
