Bug Description

I had queued up a bunch of files in Kget.

One day when I opened Kget, I found that the interface stopped responding. I cannot scroll down the list or click on any of the menu items. Kget ignores them completely.

However, Kget continues to download whatever is on my list. I can see that since I see my bandwidth being used up for downloads. When I kill Kget, i see the downloads stop.

Never mind.. it seems to work normally now that I've reinstalled KGet in Synaptic. I'll report back if I see any problems but if you don't hear from me in, say, a week, then assume this problem is fixed!

Ok, it seems to still freeze the menus (but download activity continues) occasionally after reinstalling. However, simply killing and restarting it seems to help.

It always seems to do this "partial freeze" (of the menus but not the downloads) whenever I try to add a new download via "New Download".. however, if I use the drop target, it adds fine.
