#567 App blanks multi-screens dealing with large numbers of posts

v1.3.0.29

I run a Dell laptop plugged into a docking station with
a second screen attached, so I can double screen space
to 1680 x 2074, the second screen above the laptop.
When docked, I run RSSBandit maximized in the second
screen.

If I select a large number of posts (this problem
occurred for me as I select about 1000, but it may
apply to fewer), and try to action them (e.g. mark them
as unread or delete them), RSSBandit becomes
unresponsive, then blanks the screen in the windows
background color, the toolbar moves and nothing is
visible except for a wildly updating RSSBandit toolbar
in the top left hand corner of my primary screen. Once
RSSBandit has finished actioning all the items, I can
refresh the desktop and minimize \ resize all the app
windows to make them visible again.

    This is happening to me as well and I don't have multiple
    monitors.

    Occurs on the new Nightcrawler Alpha refresh (1.3.0.36) and
    in 1.3.0.29 as well.

    The symptoms are similar to this forum post:
    http://www.rssbandit.org/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=914 ... on
    clicking Ctrl+Q (Ctrl+M in .29) with lots of unread items
    the screen is painted gray (3D background color), the start
    bar is painted on the top and flickers as the mouse moves,
    etc. In short the display is FUBARed.

    My system configurations are:
    P4, 1.2GHz, 512MB RAM, 1024x768
    P4, 1.5GHz, 512MB RAM, 1280x1024

    The reported issues should be gone with 1.3.0.42, well at
    least behave better than before.
