    This bug seems to be affecting a lot of users. I just closed 2 duplicates of this issue which each had several commenters saying they had hit this crash.

    I don't get this anymore (not with RSS Bandit, nor with IE7).
    I didn't update versions of RSS. Maybe Sourceforge reforged it's menu system.
