I've tested this on a fresh install (well upgraded but base install) of WP 2.7.1.
When I edit any of the dashboard widgets and change the URL to another WordPress install which redirects to Feedburner, on clicking update the screen loads but goes blank and doesn't reload. On manually reloading the page the dashboard loads correctly, but the change has not gone through.
An example URL that this occurs for me is:
I have tested this on a few installs and the behaviour is the same.
If I then go ahead and add the Feedburner URL directly (http://feeds2.feedburner.com/Pixelapes ), the change is accepted as per normal.
Not entirely sure where the problem might lie, but I assume if an error is being generated there should be some user feedback to let them know what the error is.
