It totally freezes when capturing http://www.commission-crusher.com
Tried with almost options OFF (like javascript, java and plugins), but it still freezes.

    Running the 2010-04 release I have the same problem. Approximately 5 out of 200 captures freeze. Not deterministic.

    Did you try to reduce:

    --max-wait=<ms> Don't wait more than (default: 90000, inf: 0)

    It is set to a minute and a half by default, which is rather high in my opinion, but it is easily changed.

    I have change max-wait to 12500 and it works as a workaround, but the cause remains.

    Hi! I have the same problem. Capturing of some pages fail after 90 seconds.

    What I found out so far is that it occurs on webpages that do have a "<frameset>...</frameset>" instead of a "<body>...</body>" or if the body-area is empty. In other words: Every tested webpage that didn't have a body area with at least one character won't be captured.

    This doesn't work:

    <html>
    <head>
    <title>test</title>
    </head>
    <frameset cols="250,*">
    <frame src="dummy1.htm" name="dummy1">
    <frame src="dummy2.htm" name="dummy2">
    <noframes>
    <body>lala</body>
    </noframes>
    </frameset>
    </html>

    But if you add "<body>x</body>" after the "<head>" area, it works fine. Maybe this is a hint to solve the problem. I wasn't able to solve it, yet.
