First I'll define "normal use" which is basically the tray icon shows
something new, I'll try to restore RSS bandit to check and it chokes. This
sometimes results in a partially drawn window or sometimes nothing at all. At
best when this happens a right click on the tray icon will flash a menu with
no items then it is gone. I must kill then relaunch, and this happens a lot.
By "a lot" I mean one out of 5 times it will choke.
There are also times when the tray icon shows it is refreshing the feeds it
will stall and after 20 to 30 seconds spring back to life.
I do not have an excess of feeds or anything crazy going on. Win XP 64, is my
platform. Core i5 2.6ghz 8gigs 'o RAM, Radeon 4870
Is there a "sleep" time of your machine in the time of use? We know already
there is a issue with that, just to asked. Difiicult to track such things
what do you mean "sleep" time? i.e. does the machine hibernate or "sleep"
before these events? If that is what you're asking the answer is no, this is
all while I'm working or gaming. The next time I try to see the new entries
RSS Bandit dies. I somewhat feel I understated the frequency of the lock ups.
It's way way beyond ridiculous in terms of sheer quantity, I'd expect less
lock ups from Alpha software much less "releases."
The newest version is very unstable in my opinion, it behaves on my machine
just like @nobody is reporting above. After a period of me not looking at it,
it will not respond from the system tray, I have to kill and restart it.
I'm not sure it's related, but I have a lot of feeds with a lot of posts, and
lots of unread items. RSS Bandit slows down the whole PC when it's updating
feeds. I don't like the tray icon, but while it's updating, I can no longer
bring RSSBandit to the front, and if it does I can click but it hardly
responds. Using version 188.8.131.522.
Is there a switch somewhere to slow the update down? I'ld like them to be done
one at a time, with a little pause between.
