Hi All -
I am using Nautilus 2.32.0and I believe that is where my problem might lie. Many times when i cause a large sort (ie by clicking Name tab) to occur in Pan Newsreader or a large transfer to occur (dragging large folder in Nautilus ) Things go slightly dark (like perhaps a hidden system modal dialog has occurred or ?) and hang that way for up to many minutes.
Tough to understand what is happening since entire system hangs when this occurs, and when it comes back - everything is fine.
Been using Pan for years. This seems to be new with Linux Mint 10.
I am considering an upgrade to 11.
