> Even weirder..Okay, this must be a pretty deep-set bug. It started working fine an hour later. I don't know what I did wrong before to make it hang...Seems to be almost random--sometimes working, other times not.
Ok, heres an idea:
On the user perferences page is a URL link. if that url points to another host on the same vhost machine it will have to wait for a timeout or a connection refused.
TIkiWIki caches external links Im unsure about the user-preferences tho, but I would have thought there too.
