When trying to edit the following entry, pybliographic
hangs and can only be killed:

@InProceedings{riloff2003a,
Author = {Riloff, Ellen and Wiebe, Janyce},
Title = {Learning extraction patterns for
subjective expressions},
BookTitle = {Proceedings of the {C}onference on
{E}mpirical {M}ethods in {N}atural {L}anguage
{P}rocessing ({EMNLP}-03)},
year = 2003
}

This entry was input using pybliographic 1.2.2. Both
1.2.2 and 1.2.3 hang when trying to edit it.

The 'hang' looks like an infinite loop of some sort:
the 'edit entry' window flickers rapidly, as if
continuously trying to redisplay its fields.

All the other entries in my reference file do not show
this problem.

    Seems to be a Gtk bug, already discussed on the mailing
    list. It has been so far hard to isolate and therefore not
    reported upstream. You should be able to work around it by
    resizing your editing window

    Forgot to login the first time.
    Just FYI, resizing the edit window doesn't help.
