Hi together,
adding a new electronic entry, giving it the bibtex key "grundgesetz", and changing the bibtex source from
@ELECTRONIC{grundgesetz,
owner = {richter},
timestamp = {2013.12.17}
}
to (source with wrong syntax)
@ELECTRONIC{grundgesetz,
owner = {richter},
timestamp = {2013.12.17}
urldate = {2013-11-11}
}
causes a dialog "problem with analysing entry" multiple times to popup (with no content, has to be closed, is annoying and pointless -> should be fixed). Besides a dialog showing "Error: no entries found." pops up with choice to restore original or edit (which is ok).

And now comes the real issue: after saing the file (under ~/abx.bib in my example) when you change something in the souce again and save, the annoying pointless dialog won't close anymore freezing the whole application to death (jvm has to be killed with SIGINT).

Jabref version 2.9.2, log attached, issue permanently reproducible
