I do not know how or why but since installing the latest xfwm4 phoenix-0.5
hangs for about a minute at startup and hangs for a very long time at "Quit".
It was working okay before (for about a week). The only change I made before
it started having that behaviour was to install the new xfwm4's from the
archive Monday (and again early today, Tuesday).
The real problem is that it is a change that I cannot revert - uninstalling
xfwm4(newest version) did not work to fix the problem. :-/
[ And, BTW, I do not think this should delay the XFce4 release since
phoenix-0.5 is deprecated("Firebird" is the new Mozilla browser)... unless it
is a problem in other aps. I am only reporting it in case it is indicative of
other underlying problems(and because I cannot 'fix' it... yet). ]
Anybody know how that can happen or, better yet, how to fix it?
I am using a phoenix 0.5 binary that I got from mozilla.org. By "hang" I mean
it is using ~100% of one CPU but the window is empty - it has no text or
graphics; sometimes it appears that only the window decoration/borders are
present(no bg at all). Usually, after a minute or two the page loads; it does
not matter where the page is located(local file or *net). Phoenix stops using
all the CPU at that point. When I "Quit" the browsing session, phoenix hangs
again - for more than several minutes - I do not know the exact time but it
will eventually quit.
I have NO error messages, so I do not know what is going on...

Thought for today:
The preferred targets of yellow jackets are sweet fruit such as strawberries,
blueberries, tree fruit, melons and the gardeners who tend them. Damage signs
include holes in ripe fruit and a buzzing noise followed by a sharp pain.
